What should I know about buying seeds/plants for garden?
Posted by: mindy66 ()

Hello,

I've heard it said that when buying seeds or plants I should be sure to buy organic, heirlooms. Do you agree?

Also, how in the world can I get my produce to be nutrient dense when the soil is lacking soooo much and the "Home" typically only offer you 3 of the many many minerals to amend with??

Thank you,

Mindy

Mindy on organic seeds:

I recommend organic seeds whenever possible. Not ALL seeds are available in organic, so if you ONLY grow organic you will MISS out on many unique varieties of crops you could grow.

I ALWAYS recommend NO GMO seeds and NON-TREATED seeds. Some seeds they coat with chemicals.

On growing nutrient dense foods, please check my youtube channel

www.growingyourgreens.com

where I teach how to build your soil by adding natural, organic ammendments.

You don't happen to live in Central Calif. do you?? If so, do you offer classes that my hubby and I could attend?

I am going to try to grow just 4-5 key things this year. I also have seeds/plant questions. What are the good seed companies? I want to build up a small library of healthy seed plants that will grow Veggies.,fruit,etc. that have their own seeds in them.
What are the companies with healthy seeds?
I like the "NO GMO seeds and NON-TREATED" from the previous post, organic is probaly the best. I will definitly grow tomatoes, then green leafy things,brocolli,kale? I live in Northern Colorado. Is there a site where this has been dealt with already??
thanks, this is my first post here.
thank you,
colkid

I could be wrong, but I thought that Seeds of Change had something to do with Monsanto now. Like I said, I could be wrong. Whatever the case.
Monsanto = EVIL
