Seed Storage

Most gardeners try to save seed year to year. Simply remembering two words -dry and cold- will help your seeds stay viable. To keep seeds dry I store them in bale jars with rubber rings. Drop a package of dessicant into the jar among the seeds before you seal it. You find dessicants, usually labeled “Silica Gel” and “Do Not Eat”, in bottles of aspirin, etc, or packed in new shoes or purses. Last of all store your jars in the refrigerator. It’s that easy – dry and cool.
