I keep mine in a large plastic old cream cracker box in the cellar.  I am lucky as the cellar is dark, but not damp and an even cool temperature.   It seems to work.   My three year old parsnip seed had near 100% germination this year.

Shoved in an ice cream container in the corner of the sitting room, without a lid, so I can inspect them to check whether I really need anymore packets....... Of course I do  :)

A tin is essential. I've lost more than a few packets due to mice. They seem to love marrow seeds most of all.
and sweetcorn seeds!

I put mine in an old wooden telescope box in the shed. Inside the box are takeaway tubs and icecream tubs to separate them by type. I did a stocktake the other day :blink:
