How can I store my seed over the winter?

Q: How can I store my seed over the winter?

A: If properly stored below 90 degrees and above 40 degrees, the seed will last 18 months from the testing date on the back of the bag. It can be used after that, but will have a lower sprouting rate. If you have unopened bags of seed left over, just store it. If opened, just seal up our self-sealing bag, squeezing out excess air. Whether you plan to overseed in the early spring or did not get a chance to get your seed in this fall, properly stored seed will be ready for use in the spring. Keep your seed from freezing by storing it in your cool dry basement (not your unheated garage or shed). Place the bags in a plastic tub or metal container so mice can not get to these tasty seeds!
