Storing left-over seed


Well-Known Member
I've got some left-over seed that I didn't get planted this year and was wondering what the preferred method of storage is?

I've heard of guys freezing their seed from year to year, but was planning on placing mine in the basement over the winter.
Basement should work fine. I put loose seed in a black plastic trash bad or in a 5 gallon bucket. Bagged seed in sealed bags just stay in that bag. Seed in paper - such as 50# of wheat also gets sealed in trash bags. I keep mine in my garage.
I kept buckwheat in the feed store bags in my unheated garage over winter once and they were good the next year.
