      I use saved seeds’ every year sometimes, a few years old! If you have a good uoanmt of a variety, and want to be sure you end up with a specific number of plants, you can easily test for viability of the seeds. On a piece of damp paper towel on a tray place 10 seeds; cover with plastic wrap or a dish; put in a warm place for a day or so. The uoanmt of seeds that sprout will give you the germination rate (for example, if 7 out of ten sprout, you have a 70% average rate of germ.) If the percentage is low, you can just plant 2-3 seeds per cell.You can go to my website plantasiact.com for a seed planting schedule-just go to the Plant Info page.
