Depends on the seed and what you do with it. If you stored the seed in paper packets semi sealed then put them in an air tight or near enough container they should be fine, keep the container in a cool dark place.
You do need know what you are sowing as all seeds need different conditions, not all seeds germinate as I found when buying expensive seed to find only half germinated. Some need heat and lots of it others cool conditions even now I will get my books out and turn to the well thumbed pages on setting seed. Many people will give them all the same conditions then wonder why some came others did not, with others it is the seed bed that is wrong, the soil too rich not free draining enough or too damp, some need cover others not, as I said you need to know what you are sowing. We at times are too impatient. some seed will be up in hours but others take weeks or even months, gardening? who needs it?
Mine go in a big plastic box in the dark under the stairs, the box helps stop the cold draught from the outside air vent
chrissie you can share mine, blinking cold in winter Send me list of your seeds and I'll see what I have room for
they might have been affected by humidity in a sealed plastic box, i dry my seed for a couple of weeks in a sealed box with some rice and then I keep mine in paper bags in an old ice cream tub (with no lid) in my fridge.
