The Victory Seed Company Bookstore

We love books and have an extensive horticultural research library (see for more information).  We are also thrift minded and work to locate deals on titles that we feel are of interest to our gardening friends. These savings are passed on to you. Our book inventory fluctuates. Many are out-of-print, rare, from publisher over-runs and in limited supply.  We also include used books from time to time.  The condition of the books offered will be duly noted in red on the book's page.  Please click on a book title below for more information, availability and pricing.
