Yesterday I read an article in the paper about the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, basically it's a huge seed store under Antarctica, if Donald gets twitchy fingers and pushes a button, survivors will be able to make there way over to the seed vault to get some seeds. They're keeping a few of everything, it's a bit like Noahs Arc for seeds.
It got me thinking maybe I should store all my seeds in a tupperware box in the freezer -- at least I would know where they all were! And apparently they should last forever, which would be a bonus because I don't think I have been able to store seeds properly for more than 2/3 years.
What puts me off from trying this is that whenever I have put 'difficult' seeds in the fridge for a couple of weeks as advised on the packet, I have always had a terrible germination rate, but that could just be because they were difficult seeds.
So should I try storing my seeds in the freezer this year or not?
