Seed Storage

Asked February 5, 2019, 6:10 PM EST

Hello! First of all I love love love your website and all your posts on Facebook. I have a question about seed storage. Many of the online catalogs and some of the package you get at big box stores have way too many seeds for my garden. What is your recommendation on storing them from year to year? Currently I keep them in a dry cool dark closet, but I have heard that you could also freeze them. Thank you so much for your time!

Thanks for your question. You don’t indicate the plant so ‘it depends.’ I think this Purdue (my alma mater!) Extension article is the best: https://www.purdue.edu/hla/sites/yardandgarden/storing-leftover-garden-seed/ Hope it is helpful. Good luck!
