    1. Found a spot in my gardening library for this oneVery nice effort! I have been doing this for many years and found very useful information in here. There is a listing of websites in the back of the book and although the list is not too extensiveoh mye websites are VERY extensive! Between the book and the referencesis is a wonderful little book to have aroundank you so much Barbara Ellis.

    2. Seeking more of a detailed book on starting vegetable seeds indoors - what to do with grow lights, humidity, etc. It seemed too basic with the indoor seed starts and hardening for transplanting. However, this book did cover starting seeds for annuals and perennial flowers too which will come in handy for future gardening endeavors.

    3. Starting Seeds: How to Grow Healthy, Productive Vegetables, Herbs, and Flowers From Seed by Barbara W. Ellis (Storey Publishing 2012) (631.53) is a very simple, very basic, very easy to follow seed starting guide for the beginner. It doesn't add anything new to the literature. My rating: 6/10, finished 10/20/13.

    4. This book is a very comprehensive resource for anyone who is new to gardening, or at least to growing from seeds. I found a lot of useful information that I will be using this growing season. I would also suggest this to seasoned gardeners because there is always more to learn!

    5. Great info presented in an easy to understand format. Terms and techniques are explained and there are several innovative ideas presented, as well. A truly great addition to your gardening resource library. I know I plan on utilizing several of the ideas and techniques found in this book.

    6. Not even 100 pages but I think is a well laid out non intimidating manual on what to know for maximum success with seed starting. My only wish is that there have been more on soil and soil alternatives. Like sterilizing your own dirt.

    7. This is a reference book as much as a book to read, but something I wished I'd had when I first started gardening. It would have saved a lot of time, money and effort. Worth buying.

    8. I liked the size of the book. It fits your hands and it quick to grab as a reference book. It has some good information but nothing I haven't seen before.

    9. Learning tips how to work with seeds. I learned a lot and I now can handle my seeds better. It is a quick read.

    10. A short book about gardening basics. Ideas I liked: Seed tape--use flour paste to glue to newspaper strips; germination testing--damp paper towel, plastic bag

    11. Super useful with practical information for you whatever seeds you are looking to start. Helped me figure out why things weren't working the way I wanted them too.
