The Victory Horticultural Library - A Portal for Historical Research

Welcome! This site is intended as a tool to foster the sharing of information pertaining to historical horticulture and to promote the preservation of significant commercially released and family heirloom cultivars.

February 21, 2023 Update - This site has been a "back-burner" project of mine for close to twenty-five years. Although the work and information is very important, the demands of day-to-day responsibilities, combined with a lack of additional support, have prevented me from developing it into the premier site I had envisioned back in the early days of the interenet. That said, I do periodically work on the site, am trying to keep the library holdings databases up-to-date, and I still dream of working on the library facilities. Please check back from time to time!

STOP . . . Don't throw out those old seed catalogs!  Along with sending a little financial support our way, another way that you can actively help, both this library as well as the seed variety preservation work of Dunton Family Farms, is to donate those old horticulture related books, bulletins, magazines and of course, seed catalogs. We have a very limited budget for acquisitions so donations are greatly appreciated.
