How do I store purchased seeds?
Here are some general guidelines for storing purchased seeds:
Keep seeds in a cool, dry place: Seeds should be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a refrigerator or freezer, where the temperature is between 32-41°F (0-5°C) and the humidity is low.
Use airtight containers: To prevent moisture from getting in and damaging the seeds, store them in airtight containers such as glass jars, plastic containers with tight-fitting lids, or resealable plastic bags.
Label the containers: Label each container with the name of the seed variety and the date of purchase.
Keep away from light: Seeds should be kept away from direct sunlight and fluorescent lighting, which can cause them to lose viability.
Check for moisture and mold: Check the seeds regularly for moisture and mold. If any seeds appear moldy or damp, remove them immediately to prevent the spread of mold to other seeds.
By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that your purchased seeds remain viable and ready for planting when you need them.
