    The best way I’ve found is to get some of those reuseable canning jars with the wire clamp lids. If you can find a big enough jar, the packets fit inside without too much stuffing.
    Also, the ‘dessicant’ packets like you find in new shoes to keep them dry will help the seeds keep longer. Just keep the kiddies well away from them.

    Keep them cool and dry. I have used some for 2-3 years, with lots of success. The germination rate can go down, but if you buy quality seeds in the first place it’s not bad. I avoid the seeds that are 20 cents a piece. Junk.

    Now you have me curious! What is the best way to store your seeds so you can use them for 2-3 years. I never seem to use the whole packet and that is even after sharing with friends. I would sure love to save them and not let them go to waste!
