Product description

The purpose of this Growing and Seed Saving Book is to give an overview of the many types of survival garden plants and how to successfully grow them in a survival scenario. The plants described in this book are Heirloom varieties that have not been genetically modified, therefore may be grown in many different growing regions and environments. These types of plants are best suited for Survival gardens, as they will typically adapt to their environment year after year creating a strong growing crop specific to your area. 

The term “organic” is often confused with things such as “Non-GMO,” or “Heirloom” varieties. Most of the time, people believe that an “organic” seed is the appropriate type of seed for survival. This is not always the case, as “organic” seeds may have simply been harvested from a parent crop that was grown organically with no pesticides or chemical fertilizer. Contrary to popular belief, many Hybrid seeds are actually grown sold and marketed as "Organic" as well. For a true survival garden, you’ll want to find seeds that are at minimum “Heirloom” varieties. These seeds will produce crops with harvest-able seeds that will produce genetically similar crops every year. 

Many people become overwhelmed by the differences in growing each of these varieties and will quickly consider their gardens a failure and give up. In a survival situation, giving up could mean much more than a perishing vegetable garden. It is important to understand not only when to start your seeds, but in what temperature environment they will germinate and become a producing plant. This guide explains everything from germination temperature, to how long germination should take, the types of fertilizer (if any) to use, your days to harvest, how to harvest, and how to harvest the seeds of your plants.

Also included in this book, you will find a ton of information about growing herbs and their medicinal properties. Make your own natural medicine in the event of a survival situation.
