    I work in a chemistry lab and we have hundreds if not thousands of different tests that we run. And we use standards for all of these tests. We store our standards in 20 mL glass scintillation vials, basically a small glass vial with screw cap. Then I thought why not organize and store seeds...

    What's the best way to store packets of seeds that you aren't immediately using? I just keep them out in the wash house for now, but am concerned about them becoming less viable for it.

    Are there any special tricks to storing seeds long term? I have a "survival box" that I put together and want to keep seeds in it in case the worst happens. I'm looking for help to ensure their survival. Right now I have seeds in zip-lock bags but I don't know if that's the best way to store them.

    Can I just by seeds from Home Depot/Lowes and store them for a few years as long as they are kept dry and cool? Or do they need to be rotated out every couple of years or so? Do I need to get some sort of hybrid seeds that are designed to store longer? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I just bought a pretty good supply of non hybrid seeds, http://www.internet-grocer.net/seeds.htm and I was wondering a few things. 1. How long can they be stored? 2. What would be an ideal condition to do this? Thank You.

    Would storing seeds in air-tight jars keep them good for a few years?

    Never Gardened! Help! I just got my seeds in the mail. How do I store them until spring? What if I don't use them all, can I store them for over a year? How would I go about that? Thanks for any help! Have a blessed day

    How long can you keep those packages of seeds before they are no good. Can they be kept in storage for a number of years or do they need to be planted every year. Can anyone help me out
