seed viability question

Asked November 19, 2017, 9:28 PM EST

I brought in some seeds, mostly Datura, after the temperature was under 30 degrees F. Would they still be viable for next year or would it have been better to bring them in when temps were over 32?

In general, for viability some seeds are stored in the freezer, some seeds need a cold period to germinate, etc. Here is general information on collecting and storing seed https://web.extension.illinois.edu/lmw/downloads/42321.pdf
All you can do is see if the seeds germinate.
