Some Popular Q&A

How long will seeds last? (be viable)

  • Room Temperature: 3-7 Years
  • Refrigerated: 5-10 Years
  • Frozen (Recommended): 15-25 Years

    Remember... Treat all seeds as if they're a living organism. They will naturally lose viability over time and it's your job to make sure that they've got the best environment to survive (We've already provided the safest packaging).

    The viability of seeds will vary for each type, but our heat sealed and moisture proof resealable packaging will help to keep them healthy for years to come.

    At room temperature, you can expect your seeds to survive from 3-7 years. Stored in a cooler climate, you could easily expect a lifespan of 7 to 25 years. (especially when frozen)

Where will the seeds grow, what zones?
