The Q&A Archives: Greenhouse growers reference book

Question: I have a Northern Lights Greenhouse. This is my 3rd year of germinating seed. Now I have to get serious and pay attention to the different germinating requirements of the hundreds of dollars of seed I buy each year. What reference book would you recommend? I want a very serious, hardcore book at this point. What do your horticulturists use for reference? The info on the seed packs is not quite enough for me anymore. Angelika Burles Lakeside, OR
