I keep ,my seed in their original little foil packets, they are all in a paper tray, which is on a top sheld in the lobby. It is draught proof and frost free. I never keep them in an airtight tin. Especially as I collect a lot of seed and it may not be quite dry enough to store. Damp seeds rot easily if airtight. I check viability of old seed by dropping in a small amount of water, those that sink are viable, those that float have had it and can be tipped out with the water.
USE BY DATE ON SEEDS
Do we really need to throw seeds away when they have passed their 'Use By' date?Jump to latest post
