Seed-based webinar follow-up #4

How long do you store your seeds? If more than one season do you find seed storage in the uninsulated building an issue?

We usually plant the majority of seeds within a year of harvest, but do hold some seeds over for the following year in case we don't find seeds for some species each year. We've done some limited testing of seeds and find that a year or two of storage seems to preserve germinability for most species, but after two years, we start losing germ of asteraceae, grasses, and others. If we were holding onto seeds for longer periods, we'd probably find a more suitable storage space!
