I don't know if they are or not, but I generally avoid them anyway because they seem like typical mass-produced, lower-quality, probably chemical-ridden seed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I use some organic seed from Vesey's and from President's Choice, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Saltspring Seeds -- tons of great organics, rare varieties, and heirlooms! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">
Yeah, just the fact they're sold everywhere turns me off. I've used them in the past and they seem to be good seeds, but I would rather not support Monsanto if I can help it!<br><br>
Salt Spring Seeds eh? I'll have to check them out - thanks!
YAY Salt Spring Seeds! Some of their garlic seed this year is from our farm (well, okay - market garden)! I love them too. I'm not sure about McKenzie seeds, but inside sources report to me that upon doing a tour of West Coast Seeds, they saw Monsanto bags there!!! Devestated!!! I buy a lot of my seed from them, but only the organic varieties.<br><br>
JOhnny's isnt Canadian, but they're from upstate NY or something and I love their seed. The organic farm I used to work on bought seed from them.
this will be my 4th year with Salt Spring Island Seeds and I have awesome results! I love the garlic it is doing so well and the 20 lettuce blend is amazing. Oh I could go on...<br><br>
I live in Terrace (NW BC) and the seeds all do so well for me.
