When looking at the details of our products some of the items will have a Care Level. This is an indicator of the difficulty that a gardener might have when growing and caring for that particular item. Here is a description of what each Care Level mean:

1 = Easy - these items are the easiest crops to grow. They are quick to mature and seed can be sown directly in the garden.

2 = Moderately Easy - these items are generally easy, but a bit more demanding or longer in crop time than 1s. They include items that can be sown directly in the garden, but have a moderate to long days to maturity.

3 = Normal - these items include the bulk of plants, including most types that are started from seed indoors and transplanted to the garden.

4 = Somewhat Difficult - these items have certain needs or requirements that must be met to have success with them. These may include specific soil requirements, need for a long growing season to mature, or preventative spraying for pest and disease control.

5 = Difficult - these items can be challenging to grow, as they have very specific site requirements or environmental needs that must be met in order for them to grow well.

Some blogs and websites have been stating that Jung Seed Company is owned by Monsanto. This is not true. Jung Seed Company has been independent and family owned and operated since its beginnings in 1907. We are being confused with a farm seed company by the name of Jung Seed Genetics that is owned by Monsanto, but there is no affiliation between us.

A little company history may be helpful in clearing up the confusion. J. W. Jung Seed Company and its garden centers are still family owned and operated. My name is Dick Zondag and my grandfather, J. W. Jung, started the business here in Randolph over 106 years ago. For a number of years the Jung family operated both a home garden company known as J. W. Jung Seed Company and a farm seed company called Jung Farms. Over 15 years ago, the 2 companies split, with the Seed Company becoming solely owned by the Zondag family (my mother was J. W. Jung's daughter). Jung Farms became solely owned by my uncle and cousin, the name was changed to Jung Seed Genetics and several years ago they sold this farm seed company to Monsanto.
