Heirloom plants often have a charm lacking in commercially produced varieties. And unless these seeds are grown and saved, they will be not only forgotten, but lost, too.
Based on the seed catalogs of Thomas Etty, Heirloom Plants lists exciting cultivars to be grown, along with profiles and cultivation tips.
Responsible gardening, certainly but with more than a hint of romance; who could resist the lure of the splendid Hubbard Green Warty squash, or the Green Zebra tomato?
