seeds and ziplock baggies
I have never posted on the seed board before. i did a search and could not find any discussion on this topic.
the question has come up in another of my garden groups, should you store seeds in plastic baggies? apparently one of the members read an ebay sellers page that claimed plastic baggies kill/sterilize the seeds so they will not germinate. something along the lines of 'commercial seed NEVER comes in a baggie now, does it?' he also claimed to be a master gardener and therefore was speaking with authority.
I personally am a seed snatcher, i never leave home without a few baggies tucked in a pocket somewhere and i have never noticed any problems with germination.
i mentioned to my friend that i would ask the experts at the gardenweb, they would surely know!
