Please note that these great value seeds have a recommended sow/best before date of 2022 making them perfect for sowing this year. We put this date on simply to ensure the freshest seed for the best possible germination results. If you are purchasing now for next year’s sowing we expect the seed to still be viable as they are packed and stored by us in optimum conditions but you may notice slightly lower germination rates depending on how and where you store them
