If they have been kept in a freezer or refrigerator for a long period of time I would think it would be best to keep them that way. I'm no expert but I would think that if they were frozen for a long period that it would be bad for them to go from frozen to room temps and vise versa you should keep them as they have been kept . At this point if it has been out of the fridge for a while then I don't know.. Hopefully someone with more experience will chime in. I just keep mine at room temp but I don't have a large collection and do not intend on keeping them for years as they will be popped within 2 years I am not worried about long term storage myself... I think the main issue is whether they were frozen or just refrigerated. If just refrigerated I would say just put them back in the fridge and keep them there. I think if they are frozen then thawed and then frozen and then thawed it would be problematic for sure...

There you go Mia, an answer from an expert in seed storage!
I've had great results in the refrigerator with 90%+ germination rates after 15 years.
@BigSur your advice probably extends the life of my little collection they are in the dry and fridge ... but I add rice and I put into the freezer.
I whole heartedly agree with you @BigSur.
I have never done it, but check out these guys... I go along with freezing seeds to keep them viable.
.. Makes one Wonder... What kind of ancient gems are lurking in the permafrost that we could bring back to life!
Absolutely. But this is mostly food, flowers, trees and such. But there's gotta be some weed seeds in there, i mean.. Right!
Not finding a heading for seed storage in FAQ.
You are right. We should add topic about seed storage into FAQ. Thanks for noticing..
That would be a prehistoric weed that will grow like Jack's maybe! LOL
Mine go straight into a mini fridge reserved for my seed stock only.
A few mm under the surface of the pro mix hp
Who has somehting like this, specially for the weed?
Mine is white and covered with seed company stickers but that's the idea. I do also keep my clone gel, coconut water and things like that in it as well.
