Pesticides on Seeds and Plants
I went to both a Seedy Saturday and Seedy Sunday this weekend just gone and both had talks about helping beneficial insects. They both pointed out that the plants sold in Garden Centres with a Bee Symbol on and saying that it’s good for pollinators, a lot of these have insecticides and pesticides on them therefore they could be potentially harmful to the wildlife. It then got me thinking about growing from seed but then a lot of these seem to be covered in pesticides or insecticides. What are others thoughts on this? And would I therefore be better getting organic seed and putting my seed into a seed swap?
