December is an ideal time of the year to look into one’s stock of seeds, to sort them out and decide which ones to sow. I try to collect seeds from fertile plants from one year to the other. It allows each generation to be more and more adapted to its environment.
It is also a good occasion for the gardener to organise their crops for the upcoming months.
I use to store my seeds in old envelops inside metal or cardboard boxes. Seeds need to be kept in a dry, dark and not too hot place. Be careful about labelling them thoroughly (name, variety, year, place of origin), making sure they won’t mix with one another.
