The end of the summer is the perfect time to start readying your seeds for next year’s garden. Proper seed organization and storage will save yourself from a lot of time down the road. Consider investing in, or making your own, partitioned container; this will eliminate countless bags of “mystery seeds,” allowing you to organize and label your seeds more efficiently.

Our strategies will keep your seeds safe during the harsh winters until the spring planting season. (Store them in a cool, dry, dark place to ensure a fruitful garden.) We also show you how long your seeds will keep if you’re having trouble deciding what to save and what to toss.
