Yeah, I got some label stickers, will try to label them new week.That is pretty! Are they labeled somehow? Some seeds like cold so I freeze them but most I just keep cool and dry.
Gut feel I say no. Seeds do need oxygen to survive. Even the likes of the giant seed banks in the arctic will open the seed containers and mix them on a few year rotation.I wonder if a vacuum sealer would help or hurt viability? I actually threw out some okra seeds once.
ziplock bags are not impermiable but they do cut down on a lot / most of the air permiation.I make seed packets from notebook paper, put my seeds in it and then put it in a sealed ziplock back with as little air as possible and then into the freezer they go. Interesting note about requiring oxygen. They get opened a couple times a year and haven't noticed anything negative yet.
stable cool temperature is ideal, but how to ensure that the refrigerator is not humid?I store all my seeds in an old mini-fridge from college days. Good use of it and keeps seeds great.
It also is very handy for a cold beer after working in the garden!
