Do you know why “heirloom seeds” are more superior? The term “heirloom” implies that something has been saved for many years and passed down through the generations unchanged.

Heirloom seeds are the only type of seed that you can keep for re-planting the following year. This allows you to plant a garden year after year with little to no expenditure. There is no need to ever spend money on seeds again. If you were to save hybrid seeds, they may be affected with a Terminator gene, causing them to be sterile.
