Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you'd like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they'll last almost indefinitely.

Sprouting Tray (Such as the SproutMaster)
Soak 4 to 8 hours – Put 4 Tbsp. or more seed in a wide mouth jar. Cover jar with screen; secure with rubber band. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water. Soak seeds 4 to 8 hours. Drain well and invert jar at an angle in a sink or a bowl.
Rinse twice a day – Rinse seeds by refilling jar halfway with water and gently swirling. Drain well and invert jar.
