All of our seeds are purchased on a regular basis from reputable suppliers to ensure their quality and viability. They have germination rates of between 85-95% and can keep for many years.
If stored correctly, these tiny things can remain viable for up to 5 years or more. You can expect to loose 10% per year, so that after 5 years, you can still expect around 50% of them to grow. Providing of course they are stored properly.
If seeds like warm, light and moist conditions to germinate, it won’t surprise you to hear they like the opposite for storage?
Keep them in a cold, dark and dry place and they’ll last for many seasons. Seeds should not be kept in a freezer but a refrigerator instead, where the temperature is about 3 degrees.
You can keep those extra seeds we sent you for the following year by following these rules.
