After all, gardeners have been doing it for centuries, simply by saving seed of the varieties that tasted or performed best. But you'll get even better results by following the advice in Plant Breeding for the Home Gardener. You'll learn how to set achievable goals in your breeding program; the ins and outs of genetics (in non-technical language!); how to pick the best parent plants; how to cross-pollinate; the best techniques to use for popular vegetables and flowers; and how to harvest and store seed. In no time at all, you'll be producing a tastier tomato, a perkier pepper, or a more ravishing rose!--COVER."@en ;
