Choosing which cultivars to grow is always the hardest but most exciting part of planning next year’s garden. It is common for home gardeners to want to avoid GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) seed. Rest assured any retail seed packet is always non-GMO as it is illegal to sell GMO seed to home gardeners. Consider the number of seeds offered in each packet versus the number of plants wanted. Partner up with a friend or neighbor to share or trade with when the quantity of seeds in a packet is more than you need.

Scientific names are understood around the world no matter the language and refer only to that one species of organism.
