I plan to plant a small vegetable garden. Where can I find neonicotinoid-free vegetable seeds? Are seeds labeled "organic" neonicotinoid-free? Thanks, Dave Haugen

The author of the article sited has compiled a list. Some of the nurseries on the list provide mail order delivery. http://northcoastgardening.com/2015/02/nurseries-neonicotinoid/ See this link for local sources. http://honeybeeclubofstillwater.blogspot.com/p/how-to-help-bees.html Neonicotinoids are not approved for use by organic farmers but it is best to ask. Vegetables are annual plants so those labeled organic should be neonic free.
