Heat, light and moisture are enemies of stored seeds so the first step is to place them on a paper towel or in a paper envelope and set them in a cool, dry place for a week or 10 days to make sure the seeds are dry. Then seal them in a plastic bag or glass jar with a lid and place them in a cool, dark place. I set mine on the floor of the linen closet and then I make a note on my calendar to plant them in
April. I hope you enjoy your marigolds next year!
