Certified Organic Garden Seeds for Planting
In nature, it all begins with a seed. Organic gardening begins with the garden
seeds you buy. It's the all important starting point for home gardens
and commercial organic farming. There are organically grown vegetables, as
well as herbs.
Why use certified organic garden seeds? The use of chemicals can alter
the genetic makeup of seeds. And, the chemicals can be carried in the seed.
The resulting plant and vegetables can be affected. The USDA requires
commercial growers to use organic seed for planting, in order to be able
to market their crop as "certified organic" produce.
