I have been searching the forums for a few days now. I have seeds that I want to keep viable (save) for future use. I have been told by a MG in my area and a DG trader that they keep all of their seed in a freezer. I am not sure how safe this will be for seed that does not do well above zone 7. I am zone 9a.
My Question is can ALL flower, plant, veggie & herb seed be safely kept in frig? OR... is the freezer method the way to go?
I have kept all my seeds, so far in a extra large recipe box that my paw paw made for my maw maw's recipes. I have not had any problems with bug, weevils or the like. But I would like the pros of long-term storing viability.
Is there a hard n' fast rule maybe? Like all flower/plant seed zoned below 7 should be kept refrigerated.
