Long-Term Seed Storage: Follow Up

Long-Term Seed Storage:  Follow Up

I suspected that Fort Collins’ work was possible at home so I gave it a shot. At just over 2 years, it seems to be going quite well. The seeds have been vacuum sealed and stored in a container in our deep freezer during that whole time. The benefits of being able to store seeds, with high germination rates, after years, is phenomenal. Has potential for a great seed vault. Allows for buying in bulk for savings too. Will come back in a year and follow up once again.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Very interesting! Have you tested seeds that you've vacuumed sealed but have kept at room temp around your house? Or seeds you have frozen but not vac sealed?

  2. Humm, a very little mistake: 4:50: "I decided to put 6 in there" – 5:25: "I got a 100% germination, all 5 came up". It means that unless you took 1 seed out, you've "only" got a 83% germination rate (5 out of 6), which stays very good. Yeah, I listen very carefully to all you say, Brent ! 😉 EDIT: Oh you corrected it later in the video ( 5:59 ). I should wait the end of the video before commenting 🙂

  3. Your seeds should store well with your method. I looked up on Fort Collins and it was an interesting read.
    I still can't get over you growing in the medium that your using but now if I slip up and call it soil I'll know that you'll know what I mean lol.👍
