  * I bought a variety packet of heirloom tomato seeds.  Started them indoors.  But they all died when I transplanted them outdoors.  So I bought transplants.

My Bad - Sorry, I did not faithfully record the source and/or brand name of every seed packet

Organic refers to a specific way plants and seeds are grown, while heirloom describes a plant's heritage.
Heirloom seeds will reproduce true to type - i.e. same characteristics as the parent plant; seeds can be saved from season to season.
Hybrid seeds are created by crossing two or more varieties of a certain plant.  Seeds will not produce parent plant.
