I have been waiting anxiously for UPS to deliver this book, delayed by the storm last week. It is awesome! Sowing, transplanting, and caring guidelines for over 600 plants from start to blosson. Whether you need to nick, soak, refridgerate, the seeds before planting. Whether they need heat, light, darkness to germinate.

The Gardener's A-Z Guide to growing flowers from seed to Bloom by Eileen Powell.

It's blue. I just got home from my son's basketball practice; picked up 6 four-foot shop lights, 12 grow lights, more peat pots and peat mix and potting mix - oh, and just a few more packets of seeds!

I'm going to bed with my new book and read until I fall asleep! Make sure I'm doing everything correctly! But so far - more plants than I expected!

I LOVE this book! As I'm planting seeds, I look at the package and compare it to the book, if there is a difference, I do 1/2 and 1/2 to see which way works best. It has information such as when to plant, how to plant, if the seed needs to be soaked, etc., light or dark,if it is best to not start indoors and plant outside instead, etc.
