2. Storing Squash Seeds
A lot of gardeners will end up with some surplus seeds at the end of planting, and this is often the case when you’ve planted an area in your garden with squash seeds. What do you do with the leftover seeds that you didn’t stick in the ground this time? They should still be good for the next upcoming planting season – but this only remains true as long as the storage conditions for the seeds are right.
If you have any seeds left over from squash planting, they’re best stored in the fridge in a sealed container or bag – marked clearly with the date and the type of seeds they are. Storing seeds outside of the fridge can mean that you have a highly reduced success rate, and some of the seeds might not come up.
Also be careful that any seeds in storage don’t get compressed, or taken down to a temperature low enough to destroy the seeds.
