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.
