Hybrid and GMO the same?

Don’t be confused. “Hybrid” garden seeds and “GMO” (genetically modified organism) seeds are not the same. A hybrid is a controlled cross between two related parent plants. GMO seeds have laboratory modified genes where they have mixed the genetic information of a plant with another organism, such as a bacteria. To be totally sure you are not buying GMO seeds, simply purchase certified organic seeds.
