Apologies if you knew this already, but I have just discovered that you can download Norman Deno's works FOC from Scribd.com.

These links to Dr Deno's "Seed Germination: Theory and Practice" and the two supplemental books are free downloads at the USDA National Agriculture Library online site. I know this book is out of print and nearly impossible to find. I hope this information is useful.


The books of Norman Deno are in the Public Domain so they are free for download.

pdf s to download are linked to on each of these pages from the US site :

Norman Deno carried out germination trials of many species. This  a useful search point for such matters:

 Links to Deno's papers  given   in the previous post....
also  see  link to Ontario Rock Garden's Seed Guide

 The websites of Kristl Walek and Gabriela Costea are also useful ....

I have a copy of Deno second edition plus the first supplement to the second edition. Don't all rush but I can try to look up individual items if you email me via Messages. You do need to know the codes to work out what is being presented, however.

I used the free site some years ago regarding some of our native plants. I found the site very useful.

Another very useful site for germination advice is onrockgarden.com which is the website of the Ontario Rock Garden Club. Very quick and easy to use.

Magnar Asparka also has a very useful source of information on his website. He gives information on whether seeds needs sowing in warmth or in cold and how long each one took for him to germinate. Go to http://magnar.aspaker.no/ and then select "Sowing methods" from his menu on the left. He lists many plants I've not found info on anywhere else.

Given the current political situation in the USA I wonder if we should all make sure we have copies of these downloaded (including a copy hosted on the SRGC website if this won't infringe copyright)?

I believe it to be the case that Deno's paper, with his permission, were now copyright free.   Will check this - good suggestion, Tristan .

Dr Norman Deno's "Seed Germination: Theory and Practice" and the two supplemental books originated as  free downloads at the USDA National Agriculture Library online site.  The copies are available here to download from the SRC site. 

The books of Norman Deno are in the Public Domain so they are free from copyright so we  load them here as a service to members.

Dr. Deno's information is usually  my first place to look for germination advice.  I use his extensive list as a base to which I add more information.  About 700 additions that include an additional 300 species so far.
