According to the Seed Savers Exchange:
In addition to looking neat and organized, this seed storage system makes everything so easy to find. When I need to take inventory of what seeds we have or what to order more of, I can quickly go through each box and make a list. If I want to head out to the garden to plant a quick bed of radishes, I can just grab that case of seeds and bring it with me! The cases keep the seed packages secure and dry while we’re outside too.
But… Don’t seeds have to be stored in the refrigerator?

That is another added benefit of our photo storage seed boxes: they’re double-encased to keep moisture out! If you do choose to store your seeds in a refrigerator, store them in an air-tight container. Also, if you are a seed-saver yourself, make sure the seeds are 100% dry before storing them!
Any cool, temperate, dry location is suitable for storing seeds. Inside a closet, a north-facing room in your home that isn’t subject to temperature swings, or in a cool basement are all excellent choices. Heck, these cases would even slip nicely under a bed! The location doesn’t need to be pitch black per se, but seeds should be stored out of direct sunlight.
There is a common suggestion floating around in the gardening world that seeds must be stored in the refrigerator. Sure, the temperature range of 32-41°F can be ideal for long term storage. However, it isn’t necessary! Furthermore, storing seeds in the fridge isn’t all that practical for most people. Particularly for those of us with large seed collections, and a fridge already stuffed to the brim with homegrown produce!
Are you ready to get in on the secret?

I will openly admit it: I am an addict. A garden seed addict, that is! As much as I try to use up old seeds before getting more than we need, I love browsing for new varieties too much to resist buying more each year. I mean, isn’t that one of the beautiful things about gardening anyhow? All of those wonderful, endless, interesting options to choose from?! If any of this is resonating with you, I have a feeling you probably have a decent little collection of seeds saved up yourself! And if you’re anything like I used to be, your seed storage stash is likely a bit of a hot mess. Am I right?
Come see the most organized, efficient, and effective way to store your garden seeds – along with ideal seed storage conditions and expiration dates!
