SEED STORAGE

Post last updated: October 10th, 2018

In Garden Tip-Compact Way To Save Seeds, I shared with you Tonya’s notebook method for saving seeds. Not everyone can cram all their saved seeds into a notebook so I am offering you another idea.

Dawn Endle, a fellow subscriber to The Plants Exchange on Facebook may have the ultimate in seed storage. Dawn stores her seeds and annual bulbs in a plastic storage unit which she puts in an old refrigerator set at 50 degrees. Come February when she wants to start seeds, everything is in one place.

  1. It’s nice and I wish it could be that simple for me, but I have doubts about a few hundred containers being economical or fitting in the refrigerator all that well while still leaving room for some other stuff… I resort to various size bags and then put the bags in bags to group by type. Not nearly as organized as I’d like, but it’s better than nothing.

    1. Gene – Personally, I don’t want the expense of running an additional refrigerator. Besides, where would I put it? I rather imagine that every gardener out there has their own system of works for them. I publish them when I come across them simply because it’s so interesting. Sort of like an artist seeing other artist’s studios.
