Understanding seed descriptions . . .

Seed descriptions

They're so small, but not so simple. Seeds seem as though they should be easy to buy, but there is actually a lot to know. Open-pollinated, heirloom, hybrid F1 and hybrid F2? Treated and untreated seeds? Non-GE and non-GMO seeds? Conventional, ecologically grown, or organic?

If it seems confusing, I hope my recent article, "The art of picking seeds,"  in The Day community papers and Zip06.com helps you find your perfect selections for the 2014 growing season.
