The Q&A Archives: Saving seeds

Question: I have some vegetable seeds left over from early spring and want to finish them in the fall. What is the best way to save them?

Answer: Leave the leftover seeds in their original packages and place them all in a sealable plastic bag (or place them in a glass jar with a screw-on lid) and set them in a cool, dark place until fall. Light, heat and moisture are their main enemies so keep them dark, cool and dry and they will be just fine. Good luck with your garden.
