Monsanto does not own General Hydroponics or Botanicare

Like the title says, Monsanto does not own General Hydroponics or Botanicare.
I keep seeing it on the forums and I thought the misinformation needed to be addressed.
Scotts owns General Hydroponics and Botanicare.
Scotts has a distribution deal with Monsanto for Round Up.
Scotts does not own Monsanto. Monsanto does not own Scotts. Scotts does not own Round Up.
Monsanto is a separate company that has nothing to do with General Hydroponics and Botanicare.
I'm not sure why that is difficult for people to grasp.

Right, I always thought that based on rumors on forums.

General Hydroponics, Gavita, Miracle Grow, Vermicrop Organics, and the brands EcoScraps and Supersoil are all owned by Scotts.

Thought this was interesting fun fact.. General Hydroponics has considerably less heavy metals than most chem fertilizers. Did my own research looking at the ADO's list of registered fertilizers and was like /mindblow (and actually my organic mix has a lot more heavy metals than I thought it did, so I guess I'll be doing some new sourcing based on this info for the health of it)

Amen brother (or sister) I am also sick of the propaganda, I have been going a long ass time and GH has been my go to product forever, always priced right, produces quality and it is consistent.

Anyone who tells me that BS now I just tune out and they lose credibility instantly with me for not knowing the facts.

I thought the original poster was wrong. These three links make them seem pretty related.

Boycott them all!

fyi 'heavy metals' are essential plant nutrients, there's a reason they're added. All healthy soul has 'heavy metals' in it.

No, they aren't. Just saying something is true doesn't make it so.
