Growing Trees from Seed: A Practical Guide to Growing Native Trees, Vines and Shrubs

by Henry Kock, et al., 288 pages, 8½x11, hardcover. While there are countless volumes on growing annual vegetables and flowers, guides to growing woody plants from seed are few and far between. Whether you start with a tiny speck of a birch seed or a plump acorn beginning to sprout, “there is much satisfaction to be gained in gathering and propagating seeds” and watching them grow into tall trees that can outlive you. With this book you will learn how and when to collect seeds from your favorite native trees and shrubs, how to process them, store them and sow them to grow your own legacy of trees. Leaning on a lifetime of experience, the authors provide an in-depth look at each species and include helpful sidebar “alerts” for exotic and invasive plants that can be confused with natives. Based on plants of the Great Lakes region, which overlap with many we have here in Maine, and many that are likely to thrive here in our warming future. -JM NEW!
