I know it's spring when blog posts about seed companies and who owns them start getting lots of hits. Recently Google searches to my garden blogs have included people looking for information on who owns the Seeds of Change seed company. "Is Seeds of Change Owned by Monsanto?" is just one of the many queries that lead people to my blogs this weekend. The short answer is, No. Monsanto does not own Seeds of Change.
How can you tell who owns Seeds of Change? You can look at their website for a clue. The SeedsofChange.com website has a copyright/trademark notice that as of today doesn't give you much information. But, if you look at the SeedsofChange.co.uk website you'll see that Seeds of Change is a trademark of the Mars, Incorporated. The same Mars, Inc., that brings us delicious candies like M&M's.
If you're looking for information on starting plants from seeds or saving seeds use my custom Google search engine devoted to information about seeds. You'll find only the best tips and ideas about planting or saving seeds because I hand-pick the websites, blogs, articles and companies to include.
