Seed Storing For Winter Sowing

I've never tried WS before. I've collected seeds already and storing them in my fridge.

Is it alright to WS them after being in the fridge?

Editor's reply: We normally store our seeds in a cool, dry place, rather than a fridge. Mind you, if the specific seeds call for refrigeration, then that makes sense.

I can't think of any reason why any seeds would not respond during the winter sowing season.

You could try a few this year and if successful, do a much larger crop the following winter. That way you don't lose all your precious seeds if they aren't going to work for some reason.

Good luck, and please do feed back your results using the Comments link below.
