FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How long will my seeds last?
A: Shelf life varies depending on the seed, but it ranges from 1-10 years dependent on the type of seed. Herbs and Teas have a shelf life of 2-3 years, vegetables and fruits range from 5-7 years, and grains range from 7-10 years. Store all seeds in a cool, dry, and dark location to maximize life. Do not freeze and do not expose to heat.

Open pollinated seeds are what is required.
