We've had quite a few request about what to do with left over seeds.  At Mary's Heirloom Seeds, a packet of Snowball Self-Blanching Cauliflower contains 200 heirloom seeds. If you don't plant all 200, You can share them with your friends and family or you can store them for next season/year.
For the best germination rates, try to use all stored flower and vegetable seeds the next growing season. Seed health and viability goes down the longer the seeds are stored. 

If you save seeds from your own produce, seeds should be completely cleaned and dry before storing.
Paper is the best storage option for seeds.  Packets should be labelled with date of storage and variety of seed.

Heritage Collection Jar *Includes 2 seed packs*
If you are storing purchased seeds they have already been cleaned.  If possible, store seeds in their original packaging to avoid mixing up seed varieties.
