saving seeds for next year
Greetings! With the food costs skyrocketing, I was wondering if it would be worth it to purchase seeds now for next growing season.
Here is my thoughts.
Many garden stores are offering many different kinds of seeds at discount prices to clear their shelves now. I can get radish, lettuce, tomato, pepper, carrot, and few other types (cuccumber, squash) at reduced prices. I understand there might be some reduced germination efficency (down to 80%), but my question to all of you with experience is considering the way things are going: is it worth it?
Have you done it before?
Have your done it with annual flower seeds?
Where did you store the seed packets over the winter?
Which types of seeds were MOST successful?
Which types were LEAST successful?
I would appreciate any and all input here.
Thank you and best wishes.
