how can I save corn seed without bugs getting in it?Mothballs OK?
Don't know about anyone else but I save seeds in my Tupperware containers, Ziplock bags, and I use film canisters for small seeds. I wouldn't use moth balls as I like to keep everything chemical free. I do not have any problems as long as the seeds are good and dry. I guess you could put seeds in the freezer. Anyone do that?
I don't know that it's a good idea to freeze seed unless it requires a period of frozen dormancy.
As long as the seeds are kept in a cool dry place, they'll be fine. I use paper envelopes, foil, plastic bags, whatever is handy.
As already said, no mothballs, please. Old jars work nicely for large seed. Deb
OK no mothballs I dont have any used them all to keep the dogs out of the flower beds.Wont do that again.
