I will have about 2/3's of each packet of many seeds left and I would like to save them. I know that some seed companies print "Packed for Season ...." on their packets and in the years past I would ONLY buy seeds for that year--and throw away any leftovers each year. This year I am both spending a LOT more on seeds because of choosing organic and primarily heirloom seeds from sustainable companies and because I am planting SO much more in hopes of being able to can or freeze enough to last the winter rather than just a couple months AND I hate to keep wasting money. Soooooo...after that lengthy introduction, I would like to hear what others do to store their seeds, how long they store them, and what, if any, detriment they see to the longer stored seeds.

I have read SO many conflicting things on this in books and on the web, I would just like to hear first-hand accounts!! LOL!!

Thanks for your time!!

:happy:

Store them in your freezer. They will remain viable longer than you will!

I agree, a looooooong winter will keep them ready to sprout when the time comes to put them in the ground.
