How should I store my Floret Seeds if I do not plant them all right away?

Store your seeds in a cool, dark, and dry place that no pests can get to (insects, rodents and other critters love to eat seeds). As long as they stay cool and dry, your seeds will keep just fine for a year or two.

Will you donate seeds to our public garden/upcoming event/charity?

Please direct any donation requests to [email protected]. We look forward to supporting you in the best way we can.
