Where do you store your seeds ?
« on: January 20, 2009, 21:27 »
I have been storing my seeds in the fridge and as my collection is growing I've had to take them out as there just isn't enough room   :lol:
 
Where in the house should I store them now ? Where do you keep yours?

Thanks

I've got a big square tin in the pantry.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

In the garage in a big round tin,

How big's your fridge!! And your seed collection!!  :D
Lol I store mine in one of those lock and lock tupperware boxes in the cool garage. I may however have to buy one the size of a fridge ( I bought 9 more packs of seeds today. Damn 'The Works'!!

Or just buy another fridge?  :D

What's your considered opinion of the advantages of round tins as opposed to square ones?

I believe it conditions them for growing in round pots from and early age.

I also store mine in a big round tin (cadburys hero's) in the kitchen cupboard - much to the disgust of my mum, who thought she was going to get a choc with her cup of tea!

P.S. round tin def helps the parmex carrots
