What is the difference between Organic and Non-Organic seeds?



  • Organic and Non-Organic relates to how the seed is produced. There is no difference in the quality of the seed or the plants produced

  • Organic seeds are produced from plants that have not been treated with any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Burpee's organic seeds have been certified as organic.

  • Non-organic seeds are produced from plants that may have been treated with synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Seeds not labeled with the term organic are not organically grown.

  • None of the seeds that Burpee offers are treated after they have been harvested.
