A manual for the production of seeds in the family garden,
A directory of the seed varieties of Association Kokopelli.
This work presents for each vegetable or grain
plant various general headings : botanical classification,
history, nutrition, gardening advice. It then presents two
headings linked to the reproduction of the plants - "pollination"
and "seed production" which set out in detail the
different types of pollination, the nature of the plant (autogamous
or allogamous), the required distances for isolation, the
technique of producing the seed and advice relating to the
cleaning, drying, sieving and storing of the seed. There is
sometimes an additional heading "varietal creation"
for the gardeners wishing to produce their own varieties.
You will also find a directory of something
in the region of 2500 varieties or species. We have expanded
our research of the old varieties and now propose in the directory
more than 600 varieties of tomato, more than 50 varieties
of aubergine, more than 300 varieties of sweet and hot pepper,
more than 150 varieties of squash, more than 40 varieties
of melon, 130 varieties of lettuce, etc. Each variety is fully
described with all its characteristics set down.
The price of "The
Seeds of Kokopelli" is £24.00 (plus p&p).
If you are unable or unwilling to shell
out the cost of the book, there is still the original Terre
de Semences Catalogue, containing details of about
1400 varieties, at a cost of £3.00 (plus p&p).
