Vegetable seed longevity germination past use by date
Hi, sorry if this has been covered before, but I couldnt find anything. I have a lot of seeds about 4 years old and wondered if they would be ok to use.
I decided to experiment, just because i had them anyway, and wondered if there are general rules about how long seeds can be kept. I had heard parsnip seeds are 1 season only, so didnt sow those. Beans and peas seem totally reliable as if they were new. Beetroots too i have loads of seedlings.
With several types of lettuce though, i have nothing, and nothing with courgette. What have other people found? Or are you not daft enough to try it !
