Tips for Preserving Seeds

Do you want to save your seeds for next year? Here’s how to store them properly to ensure germination!

Seed Expiration

We guarantee germination for 1 year from the date of purchase of the seed pod kit. However, typically the seeds remain viable for 2 years if stored properly. Exposure to excessive heat or humidity may shorten the lifespan of a seed.

Seed Preservation

The best way to preserve the seed pods is by storing them in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight – a place where the temperature will not fluctuate much. The refrigerator is generally the best place to store seeds. But stay away from the freezer, any seed that cannot be dried properly should not be frozen or else you risk damaging the cell wall of the seed. Some seeds store better than others. Tomato seeds, for example, can last for more than four years if stored well!
If you have your own seeds and are using a Grow Anything Kit, ensure your seeds are properly dried. Let them air-dry for about a week before placing them in an air-tight container. Store them in an area that is cool and dry year round. When you are ready to plant your seeds, keep them in their closed container until they reach room temperature to avoid unwanted condensation.
