The Q&A Archives: Tomato Seeds

Question: I have seeds left over from last year. They did very well then and I am wondering if they are still good or if I need to buy a new packet.

Answer: If you stored your seeds out of light, heat and humidity, and kept them from freezing, they should germinate for you this year. Whenever you have leftover seeds, store them in an airtight container such as a jar with a screw-on lid, and store them on the floor in the back of a closet or cupboard. Keeping them at a reasonably cool temperature, out of light and away from humidity will prolong their lives for 2-3 years.
