are your seeds treated with chemicals

Answer: Seeds can be treated with a variety of chemicals to achieve different results, many seeds are coated with a plastic polimer to help them flow through machinery and give more even resutls. The majority of our seeds are not treated with any chemicals although some are treated with thiram. This is a fungicide which we are required to treat some seeds with to ensure a quality seed product. The seeds which are treated with thiram are stamped with a lable which says ‘caution treated with thiram so not eat these seeds or feed to animals’. The plants grown from treated seeds are still perfectly safe to eat as the thiram will stay on the seed coat and not interact with the plant.
