Did you know there’s actually a wrong way to keep seeds? There’s 3 simple rules to ensure happy seeds-in-waiting: dark, dry, cool. And if we’re being honest, seeds are a little bit like potato chips; you can’t have just one. It’s real easy to get a little grab happy and be like, “I need this one, and this one, and that one, and OOH! Don’t have that one!” and before you know it you have more seed packets than you can count on your fingers and toes and you think… “Well, now what?”
Hopefully it’s close to sowing time, and a lot of your seeds can be put to immediate use. But even if that’s true, you may still have some left over, and will want an easy and efficient way to keep the extras for next year (and BTW, you can totally keep them for next year! Some people think it’s a one and done thing, but seeds will be prolific as long as you store and care for them properly.)
So come, take a peek inside my greenhouse, check out how I store my seeds, and take a look at a few recommendations to make your garden dreams take a step closer to being a beautiful, delicious reality!
