Vegetable Seed Storage


Seeds should be stored in a cool, dry place with as little light as possible. Kitchen cupboards are about the last place in the house to store them. Temperatures in cupboards will fluctuate wildly on days when you are using the stove or oven.


A spot in the basement farthest from your furnace and/or water heater is generally best. If you don't have a basement I would recommend a closet on the north side of the house. I have found that a shoe box is about the best storage device made.
