Speaking of seed life

Post  janezee on 12/15/2011, 9:50 pm

If you have seed left over from planting and are planning on offering it on the seed exchange or using it next year, you might want to either check out the average seed viability at a couple of these sites:

I like this one the best so far:
http://dirthappy.blogspot.com/2010/02/seed-viability-table.html

This one seems a bit too optimistic, but I know some seeds sprout after 10 years:
http://www.growingyourownveg.com/vegetableseedviability.php

This one is pretty, and offers two ways to read it, and gives advice on storing seed for a long time:
http://growingtaste.com/storage.shtml

This one offers a comparison chart:
