The Q&A Archives: seeds

Question: can you freeze unused seeds to be used at a later date? maybe putting them in a vacuum sealed bag.

Answer: Most seeds should not be frozen but you can save unused seeds by sealing them in a plastic bag and then putting them in a jar with a screw on lid. Set the jar in a cool, dark place and the seeds will keep for at least a year, sometimes 2-3. Light, heat and moisture are elements that ruin seeds so keep them stored as suggested above and they will remain viable for a long time.
