The Q&A Archives: Seed Swap

Question: I was an NGA member a few years ago and one of my favorite perks was the seed swap. Does this still exist in print or on line? What is the best way to extend the viability of the seed?

Answer: The NGA Seed Swap is still available online. You can access it at:

Store seed from year to year in a dark, cool, dry spot. I keep mine in plastic zipper bags in the crisper drawer of my refrigerator. Remember that while you can successfully save seed from year to year, the germination rates will drop as the seeds age.
