How to Freeze Vegetable Seeds for Storage


•1
Keep your vegetable seeds in the packets you bought them in so you will be able to easily identify the seeds. Keeping the seeds in their packet is also a beneficial way to keep the planting instructions for the seeds. If the packet has been opened, fold the top of it over to keep moisture from getting to the seeds.

•2
Place the packet of vegetable seeds into a small sealable plastic bag. Write the date on the bag with black marker. If you want to freeze more than one type of vegetable seed, you can place all of the bagged seeds into one large sealable plastic bag.

•3
Place the bags of seeds in your freezer. Make sure the bags are sealed well before storing them. Also, make sure the temperature of your freezer is between 24 and 28 degrees.

•4
Keep your seeds frozen until the next spring or longer, depending on the seed. Check the seed packet for the seed's specific freezing duration.

•5
Take out the bags when you are ready to plant the seeds. Store the seeds at room temperature for at least one day before planting. Wash your seeds in cool running water and allow them to dry on a paper towel.

Tips & Warnings

It's important to store seeds safely in plastic bags so that you don't lose any moisture within the seeds..Some seeds can be frozen for three years or more; onions, on the other hand, can only be frozen for one year..While the seeds are frozen, you should make sure not to open or touch the bags. Try to keep the seeds in a freezer that you never or infrequently use, if possible. If you're not sure how long your seeds can be frozen, you should only freeze them for a year..
