Scotts has made the decision to develop and sell GMO bluegrass seed. The company could have maintained a more positive image and retained loyal customers by not going the GMO route, but they chose to do so anyway. So, although I was a buyer of Scotts' products for years, I will now abandon Scotts for one of their competitors.

An okay hold if you already own some but buying any more at higher than $35 would not be advisable, IMO.

Settle any margin debt you may have on it but it's probably not going up any time soon.
