Plant Mixed Garden With Old Seeds

contest winner icon

If you have a bunch of old seed packets and they are outdated or you don't know how old they are, find a spot and mix them all together and see what grows. I've seen some beautiful flower gardens grown this way.


In the fall when you are cleaning up your flowers, you can also toss the plants off into one place and the seeds will germinate and grow into a nice mixed garden.

if you keep your seeds in the freezer, most will last for years (as an aside, the same is true for yeast)

Thank you. I didn't want to just throw the old seeds out. I might even mix old vegetable seeds in with the flower seeds. Whatever comes up will be a bonus.
