I purchased a bunch of seed packets a couple of years ago. About half are from Livingston Seed Co which I learned is a reputable non-GMO company. The rest are called "American Seed". I googled American Seed and found that these seeds are from a company called Plantation Products  ( http://www.plantationproducts.com/pages/cfHome.cfm ) and they have a LOT of bad reviews. There is another American Seed Co ( https://www.americanseedco.com/ ) which is a reputable supplier and they have a disclaimer saying they are not the company selling "American Seed" products to big box stores. My question is, are these American Seeds from Walmart and Meijer type stores a rip off? Should I throw them away or use them? Are Livingston Seeds ( http://livingstonseed.info/ ) as good as the website states? This is a lesson. Packages that say "American Seed" are NOT from the America Seed Co. Read your packages.

I have been very lucky with my purchases from American Seed Company. I have better germination than I get from other very reputable companies. My packages clearly state "Plantation Products".

I know we have planted green beans, spinach and corn.  Only corn was not a variety we liked.  I have purchased lots of flower seeds from them.  The price is much cheaper than the very reputable seed companies so I will continue to buy their seed.

When I do my research and decide what I want to purchase I look at them first, then look elsewhere for the things they don't have available.

By all means use the seeds that you have! 

"The Plantation Products Family of Brands Trusted by gardeners since 1850"  "Plantation Products manages the most well-known seed and seed starting brands in North America. Many of these brands have been around since the mid-1800's and have been trusted by generations of gardeners. Everyone at Plantation feels a deep sense of pride and responsibility to carry on the tradition of these brands by delivering the highest quality products to gardeners."
