  • The answer to this question is..... MAYBE! (I want to say it's a little late to start seeds but who knows with this weather we had)

  • A definite maybe. We plant a mix every year - this year all our sweet corn seed was new and 2/3 of it isn't coming up, but the old radishes/carrots/random others that we mixed for DS are coming up well. IMO it's always hit & miss, as even new seeds don't always come up.

  • If you stored them properly (dark, cool, dry place) you should get at least a 75% germination rate. If you stored them in a drawer somewhere you'll get anywhere from 0-75% ~ it depends on the seed and how much it was actually affected by the humidity and heat/cold.
