If you stock up on a seeds, also do the research on how to repopulate the plant. Some plants have specific processes for prepping a seed... like tomato for example.

And it depends on the size of the seed, I can sprout beans/peas 5 years after their package date, tomatoes 3 years, lettuce ... maybe not good the next season.

these are the only folks I do buissiness with aside from a few locals. They have been good to me. I compare my prices among the three to get the best deals possible. Alot more work than most are looking to do but well worth it in the end.

I could not get one corn salad seed out of 12 from 2011 seed to sprout this fall. I use a heating blanket, grow light in wet paper towel and ziplock to germinate my seeds. With 90+ deg outside I grow them inside then trans plant. I do have Tom Thumb lettuce that is 4" in dia from 2011 to put out hopefully next week.

I am toying with the idea of digging up a Big Bertha hybrid bell pepper and try to keep it growing through the winter in the Basement. I will be starting my Cali Wonder saved seeds the first of January any way.
