The Q&A Archives: Lettuce seed tape

Question: Every year I buy gourmet blend lettuce seed tape. I have a small garden so I use only one packet in our Spring (now) and save the rest for Fall planting in September. Last September the seeds did not germinate. Should I being storing the seed tape forthe Fall in a special place? Cool? Dry?

Answer: The best way to save your seed tape for fall planting is to<br>place it in an airtight container. If you have room in<br>your refrigerator keep it there. If no room in refrigerator, keep them in the coolest place you can find.<br>If kept in the refrigerator lettuce seed should remain <br>viable for up to 5 years. <br><br>Also, perhaps there was another cause for your poor germination--dry soil, for example.
