Victory Horticulture Reference Library
Appropriate Use Statement / Entry Agreement / Main Page

Documentation is a very critical part of seed preservation work. We have a very limited budget for purchasing old books, magazines and seed catalogs and rely largely on donations. If you would like to share old horticulturally related documents like others have, please contact us.

The reference library contains documents dating back to the early 19th Century and is a cooperative effort made possible by noted individuals who have donated their time to scan material in their personal reference libraries. These materials are available for use with certain stipulations.

  • All images are copyrighted by their respective owners, not public domain, and presented here for personal and professional research and reference use only.

  • Images may be downloaded, printed or stored by you to meet your personal research needs.

  • Under no circumstances shall the images in this collection, in whole or in part, be used commercially or for personal gain.

  • Do not remove or edit the credits on the images.

  • If referring others to this online resource, do not circumvent this page.  Please use our main page at
