A Guide to Plant Breeding at Home

 Customer Rating

This easy-to-follow guide will explain how to create new plants in your garden! It will firstly teach you how to recognise an unusual plant that might appear naturally in your garden. It will also explain, step by step, how to breed your own plants by hand!

Plant breeding is not just for people in white coats working in sterile laboratories. Plant breeding can be fun and very rewarding, especially when you bear in mind that every plant you raise has the potential to be unique. Basic skills for plant breeding are patience, good observation and a clear idea about what you are hoping to create.

You do not need much room or space. Some gardeners over the last 350 years have vied with each other to produce the ideal new plant in only the tiniest of back gardens. Plants like Calendula, Dianthus, Nasturtium, Nemesia, Petunia and many others can be grown in pots and will take up little space.

Order this clearly written and informative leaflet FREE with your plants and seeds and try your hand at creating a totally new plant!
Let us know how you get on!
