    Seed stores make a great gardening gift. Whether its for seed swaps or for saving your own heritage seeds, these seed stores will be a welcome present for any grow your own enthusiast.

    Storing seed is very simple, and will save you money and enable you to grow more of your favourite varieties. The most important rules are to dry the seeds well and to keep them cool. Dry cool seed should last at least a couple of years, or longer if frozen.

    Each tube is 10cm long and has the capacity for around 100 beans.

    5 tubes included in each pack.

    Seed saving tips:

    Ensuring you get the variety you want…
    Two simple rules: only keep the best and prevent cross-pollination. Only keeping the best is straight forward, you simply remove those that look less healthy. Preventing cross-pollination is a bit more involved. For inbreeding varieties, for example peas and French beans, its not a problem as they rarely cross with other varieties. But for outbreeders, such as brassicas, runner beans, alliums and beetroots, you need to either grow just one variety at a time, or find a way to prevent cross pollination with cages or barriers. In all cases save seed only from open-pollinated varieties and not F1 hybrids.

    Ensuring you seed lasts a long time…
    The two factors that reduce the life of seed are moisture and warmth. Moisture is probably the most important. A dry seed will last much longer at room temperature than a moist seed in the fridge. Dry the seed in a well aired, shady spot, not in full sun. A cool shed is fine for storage, but a fridge or freezer is even better. If the seed has been stored at very cold temperatures, then let it adjust to the ambient temperature for a couple of days before sowing.

    For more information, try the Seed Saving Guidelines from the Heritage Seed Library.
