The seed producer has advised us that the best place to store seeds long term is in the fridge. Many of the seed varieties in this pack can be stored for 5-20 years depending on the variety. Germination rates can be expected to slowly taper off (note: the generic use by dates printed on packets are a bureaucratic requirement).
We have several other seed packs that are complimentary to this seed pack.
Note: some varieties may not be posted to WA and will be excluded from the pack.
