Last year just as experiment I mixed up all of my old veg seed, then sprinkled it across several large beds. I realise that this isn't quite the same, but the results were very impressive. I had less insect/slug attacks, all crops flourished, and what I didn't have time to pick and use, I just left to run to flower. This in turn looked fantastic and also served to help the local bee population out.
Even now, I am still using the leaks, onions and parsnips.
The system may or may not work if I tried it again, but it's still a good way of using old seed and worth a try.
