Storing Seeds

Seeds that you didn't get around to planting this year should be fine next year if stored properly. Most seeds can be stored for 3 to 4 years. The key will be storing the seeds in a cool, dry, and dark place. Keep the temperature between 40 and 50 degrees F. It's best to store them in a moisture-proof, sealed container.

Storing Seeds

I have trouble with grain weevels this time of the year. I solve the problem by putting my seed in the freezer for 24 hours. Works like a charm. Too bad it doesn't stop it from germinating and causing weeds. Oh, well. (07/27/2006)

Storing Seeds

I keep mine in a ziplock bag then in a plastic container. I also keep the packages that are empty until the end of the season to see what I liked about the seeds, maybe get that kind again, etc. Not all seed grow in each of our soils, some version of a vegie would be better than another, depending on your soil.
