*Blush* 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. Hurray! 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 *Blush*
Hugs, Mich and Crew!

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

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. Green Grin!

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!
