#Gardening : Heirloom Seeds - Monsanto Owned? [Printable List]

Gardeners Be On Guard for Monsanto Connected Heirloom Seeds!

Buying heirloom plants or seeds? Apparently it isn't as simple as I thought it might be. Did you know Monsanto has its finger in the Heirloom Seeds pie?  Print this list of Seminis/Monsanto home-garden vegetable variations and keep a copy in your wallet.
While Monsanto /Semmis do not own these heirloom seeds, purchasing these seeds apparently will put cash into their pockets.  Is that where you want your hard earned dollars to go?   Print this list of Seminis/Monsanto home-garden vegetable variations and keep a copy in your wallet. Don’t be caught off-guard when impulse shopping.
