If someone did not yet have any onion seeds this is a fast way to get a collection going. If they are hybrid it won't be the exact same onion but its still better then nothing at all.

I'm glad I started seed saving years ago but I have a few weak spots in my seed bank that I am building up this year.

I would love to know the best way to save seeds. I have accumulated a sizable bank but they have expiration dates on the pouches.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Cool and dry for normal life expectancy. Some seeds will go bad quicker then others. For long term storage, I would like to know how that is done. Seed banks keep them very cold but I have not been able to find that info yet.

That has been my research as well. Thanks for the reply.
