The Good Seed Guide

Subtitled All you need to know about growing trees from seeds, this little book from the Tree Council is an invaluable guide.

The first half of the book is a guide to native and other commonly found trees that you may want to plant in the UK. Each tree is described in detail with illustrations of key features such as leaf, seed and silhouette. There is a brief description for each species of how to treat its seeds for best planting results.

The second half of the books looks at specific techniques of seed treatment to ensure germination and good growth.  So anyone wanting to plant trees will find all the help they need here!

The Good Seed Guide published by The Tree Council on paper from the Nordic Environmental Label (but not recycled paper as one might hope).
