Comments On - Saving Seeds


It would be interesting to see a list of seeds that have a long keeping period. I understand that as years go by the seeds viability diminishes. But, there are seeds whose viability keeps longer than others.

I'm a serial seed saver. I like trying to grow pretty much anything I find. I have three different tomatoes that I am growing this year as well as three diff peppers.If my seed collectijn gets any larger,I think I'll need an intervention!

I am going to try saving seeds for the first time this year. I am a little confused as to the best way to store the seeds during the winter months.

As a big fan of saving seeds, I have also successfully planted and grown seeds from crushed red peppers from the table shaker at my neighborhood pizza restaurant, peppers from nearly petrified fruit found still stuck to the desiccated plant on which it grew, fruit trees in my office from apple and orange seeds from my co-workers fruit, and countless other plants, both edible and ornamental from cuttings and leaves. Life is fun when you don't have to buy seeds.

It came at the right time as I was thinking about saving seeds to grow next year. Can you use the seeds from the veg & fruit you buy at a farmer market or a store.
