I've been gardening most of my life, but I do not know what these two words mean. I was one of those organic gardeners that went to the store, bought the seeds or plants, planted and grew them without any commercial fertilizers. Thanks to this board, I have learned that I have alot more to learn :p . I am waiting on my seed catalogs to arrive and I need to know the definition of "open pollinated" and "heirloom" before I decide to order seeds or not. I'm assuming heirloom has something to do with old seeds. Why would anyone want old seeds? Forgive me for the stupid questions, but I gotta start somewhere! :)

Thanks to both of you for the explanations. Now I know why I can't the seed I save from one year to do much of anything the next year. I'll know better this year. I sure wish my seed catalogs would get here! :(
