A new study has found that careful tailoring of seed collections to specific species and situations is critical to preserving plant diversity. Once seeds are saved, they can be reintroduced for planting in suitable locations if conditions are favorable. In the study, researchers from the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis and the University of Tennessee used simulation-based planning to make sampling recommendations, confirming that a uniform approach to seed sampling is ineffective. First, collectors must choose their plant populations from a wide area rather than a restricted one. Sampling widely can capture up to nearly 200 percent more rare genes than restricted sampling. Collecting from about 25 maternal plants per population versus 50 plants appears to capture the vast majority of genetic variation. The study also showed that collecting more than eight to ten seeds per plant leads to high overlap in genetic diversity and wasted effort. Increasing concern over agriculture and food security and recognition of how fast biodiversity is disappearing has prompted seed banks to ramp up their collections. Botanic gardens that were once focused on showcasing plants now increasingly have a conservation mission as well, according to the study's lead author Sean Hoban. "Our approach can be used to further refine seed collection guidelines, which could lead to much more efficient and effective collections, allowing us to preserve more diversity of the world's plants. These collections could benefit future ecosystem restoration projects as well as improve agricultural and forestry efforts."

I wonder how time consuming and expensive this would be to do on your own. This light and airy structure would be perfect for a small garden because it combines patio and outdoor space with lots of plantings. Called the ecocube, it is a vertical garden, and provides shade too. Made of sustainable cedar, it is contemporary but would fit into any outdoor setting. You can choose the size of the building, and the number of screens and planters.

Anybody who can write with enthousiasme about growing your own is a hero. James Wong's new book Homegrown revolution is definitely worth it. Want to grow something new and exiting then this is the book for you.
James Wong's Homegrown Revolution, by James Wong. James's idea is simple and revolutionary. For 100 years, gardening books have said the same old thing about growing the same old fruit and vegetables. But in the wider world, as well as closer to home, there is a huge variety of delicious and often simple-to-grow incredible edibles suitable for temperate climates.
James Wong's Homegrown Revolution. A revolution in the garden - a completely new range of fruit and vegetables to grow and eat. Whether it's a window box of homegrown saffron, your very own kiwi vine or a mini green tea plantation on your patio, TV botanist and best-selling author James Wong proves that 'growing your own' can be so much more exciting than spuds, sprouts and swede.
I'm insanely excited about this ~ looking forward to next year's quinoa harvest already! ~ James Wong's latest book, "Homegrown Revolution". http://homegrown-revolution.co.uk

I’m a huge James Wong fan; I now own all his books (thanks to James’ wonderful publishers who kindly sent me his new book which will be realised worldwide later this week). James Wong’s previous books are both about growing your own drugs; ie making your own natural remedies. His new book is a new twist on a topic that is a huge passion for many people; our gardens. With so many garden books out there it truly takes a special book to become the number one gardening book in the UK without even being released yet!! James’ new book is called Homegrown Revolution and I think the title almost …
Herb Bed, Herbs Garden, Raised Garden
Stacked herb bed a couple of weeks ago with just regular, construction lumber. Use Trex, redwood or cedar (rot resistant)...Also, when building your raised beds, make sure not to use treated wood. Chemicals will leach into the soil and contaminate your food.

Ideally, they should receive five or six hours of bright sunlight per day. If you want to grow herbs throughout the winter, you can purchase a fluorescent grow light.

Follow this one tip in your garden & get a ton of strawberries! Also a little strawberry education! This is SO good to know, I needed a little knowledge with my 9 strawberry plants.
When you purchase your strawberry plant, you have a central plant. As it grows it produces runners. Runners are long stems that run off the central plant and create baby strawberry plants. These baby strawberry plants suck the nutrients out of the central plant and the central plant will lose its ability to produce fruit.
Simple and smart. Removing runners to produce more strawberries from your strawberry plant

from Thompson Morgan- Dwarf Meyer Lemon...one of the reasons that I love going into a greenhouse is the smell of citrus ... but then there is the fruit ..and on a 3'plant it makes a nice house plant given the proper care ...4hrs of direct sunlight ..care in watering , don't let stand in water or dry out or the leaves will drop ..like when I went on vacation ..acid soil , and cool night temps but above 50 F and a bit more but not hard
just bought dwarf lime tree to go with my lemon tree. all I need is a container for it

Got Pallets? Hate weeding? Dont feel like turning up a bunch of grass? Use a pallet as a garden bed - staple garden cloth on the backside of the pallet fill with dirt and start growing! You can also place your pallet on the ground in a rocky location rather than a grassy area, this way you will not need the garden cloth to stop the weeds and grass comin through.
