Seed Bank ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here at the Millennium Seed Bank`s `Great Seed Swap` at the National Trust`s Wakehurst Place, we hear about the rich diversity of plant varieties that can be grown for food; see keen gardeners and horticulturalists exchange seeds; and learn from the experts about the importance of saving and sowing our own open-pollinated seeds.

Question. if I save seed from F1 hybrid and grow it the following year successfully what does it become?

Will the seed from the feed bank grow in the lands that have been chemical farmed where only genetically engineered/modified seed will grow? How long does it take for chemically farmed land to become usable for seed that are not genetically modified? Will it ever be productive land again for natural seed??

Beatutiful! Well done all of you for publicizing this so well – essential if we are going to fight back against Monsanto and their ilk!

Terminator seeds this video mention are a myth which never turned (nor will turn anytime soon) into reality. Also, all seeds come from two parents, but hybrids are special because they are formed by the combination of two very specifically selected/designed parents.
