I need to take my daylily seeds out of the refrigerator to divide them up between three people. I will have to label extra Ziploc bags and count out the seeds to divide. I have many to do. I am wondering if the seeds will be harmed by coming from refrigeration, into room temps while I do the labeling and counting, and then back into the refrigerator. Will the cold, warm (room temp), and cold again harm them?

They have not all been in the frig. for three weeks yet. Should I leave them all for a FULL three weeks before dividing? Or can I do it now as long as they go back into the frig. for the remainder of the 3 weeks (or longer- til January actually).
Thank you!!

Sue, I don't know a thing about DL seeds but I'm sure if you post this question over on the Daylily Forum: http://garden.org/forums/view/daylilies/ one of the more knowledgeable growers/hybridizers will be able to help!
