with the smaller companies, you can't always find what you want. so browse a few and you'll usually find everything you're looking for.

Thanks Nancy--I'm going to try growing some of my own vegetables, and was just wondering (last night) how I could be sure of getting non-GMO's.
Have saved this list and will share it with others.

The anti-GMO companies most always have disclaimers in their catalogs saying they will not knowingly sell GMO seed - I always look for that before I buy.

Kudos Nancy. Just the info I was hoping for with planting season under way. I usually plant already potted. Maybe you know a nursery that sells organic planlings. I never have any luck with seeds.

Thanks again Nancy for sharing this, sad though may it be.... I'm always finding myself taking deep breaths and initiating mini prayers for an increase in the empowerment of all us people to re-claim our natural and healthier ways of living in harmony here on our home...mother earth. These giant hollow hearted monster corporations do not have our best interests at heart....... They are up to no good. Our voices need to ring out......................

I wish I had seen this list before I bought seeds. I want to plant sunflowers outside my bedroom window so that they will block the afternoon sun. Also, I would rather see greenery than to see the house that is back there. Last year when I bought seeds, the brand that I got was NK for Northrup King which I didn't see on either list. The brand of sunflower seeds that I got this year are from Ferry-Morse which is on the first list. I also bought some flower seeds that are from Lily Miller and didn't see that brand on either list. I guess I will look for some Ed Hume seeds. I really want sunflowers, the kind that grow tall and leafy. Not necessarily the kind with the biggest flowers.

very helpful. i would have thought burpee was not a good company based on the similar marketing strategy it has to all of the offending companies.

Monsanto wants to control all the water and the food, what is next the air we breathe? or maybe the sunlight?

This sends a shiver down my spine.. luckily, you can avoid Monsanto in Europe, as long as you are willing to do a little research before buying your food.

Although I too am one of those "already potted" planters, I will stick with Burpee Seeds and products. Shared with friends as well. Thanks!
