Excerpt from The Seed Grower: A Practical Treatise on Growing Vegetable and Flower Seeds and Bulbs for the Market

Seed-growing properly pertains to an agricultural country, such as is the United States. It is a business in which the profits are large and one which to supply our needs in full affords great opportunity for much enlargement in this country. It is also an industry that could be built up here for export trade, which at present amounts to comparatively nothing.

In all candor it must be said, we do not stand in the front rank before the world as seed-growers. For, while the past quarter of a century has seen much progress here in seed-growing, the industry with us is still in a stage of infancy and much remains to be done. As evidenced by the following pages, we still depend to a large extent on European growers for the best grown seeds of many varieties, particularly of beet, cabbage, carrot, cauli?ower, kale, kohl rabi, leek, onion (a few kinds), parsley, parsnip, radish, spinach, turnip, the choicer grades of ?ower seeds and all our Fall planting bulbs. The exceptions to these, however, namely, peas, beans, celery, cucumber, lettuce, melon, tomato, certain kinds of onion, we no longer import, for we have demonstrated our ability to grow the finest seeds of these ourselves more cheaply than can be done in Europe. Therefore what we are doing with these we can also do in producing commercially all other seeds required for the garden.
