| Well it's been some time since I went through the door of my fridge. The condiments rotate fairly frequently and all the spills happen on the regular shelves. Anyway. I found some 250 daylily seeds I got in the spring of 2010, so they were probably from fall 2009. I figured they were all losses, but I added peroxide water to all the bags anyway just to be positive. It's now 4 days later and I have 36 sprouted seeds! I am so happy. I really didn't figure any at all would still be any good. I've potted those 36 up and am eagerly awaiting more to sprout. I'll let you know! I still feel bad that I forgot about them, or more likely just didn't realize so much time had passed!!! Getting older |

|Congrats on them sprouting. You should have plenty more since they stay pretty viable in the fridge. |

|Wow, I didn't know they would last that long in the fridge either. |
Didn't take long for them to sprout. Amazing. Now the real fun begins.

|That's great news! I've known about my seeds since I put them in the fridge, but can't seem to get them potted up! I finally started soaking them about a week ago, so I hope mine germinate as well as yours did! And, I now know that I can save some for next year if I feel like it!|
