The Q&A Archives: Seed Storage

Question: We have excess Burpee seeds. How do we store them until we can plant them next season?

Answer: The seeds should be put in an air-tight container, like a mason jar or a zip-lock baggie, and stored in a cool, dark location like a basement or closet. Light, heat, and humidity will reduce the viability of seeds, so store them carefully and they'llbe ready for use next season.
