Seed Storage

Seed Storage

While unused grass seed may remain viable for years, its rate of germination will decrease over time.  Be sure to keep seed stored in a cool, dry environment.  To maintain optimal viability, the rule of thumb for storage is that the temperature and the relative humidity added together should be less than 100.  Store in 5-gallon pails with tight-fitting lids.

Do not store seed in plastic bags since they will be a magnet for hungry mice and other rodents.
