Using Old Seed?
My uncle gave me a film container labeled " '99 italian tomato seeds" and wants me to try to start them... These are seeds that he collected from tomatoes we grew for years. He originally got the seeds from a co-worker who got them from family in Italy. From what I remember, they were good sized, excellent flavor and very few seeds. My grandma used to make juice from them.
Any chance I can start these? There are maybe 50 seeds and have been kept in the film canister in a bedroom dresser drawer.
What's the best way to start them? I've had bad luck in the past with dampening off, but want to try again this year.
