Label and Sort Seeds Once your seeds start to arrive, be sure to store them properly. This will ensure that you achieve the greatest percentage of germination. First, create labels to keep your seed packets organized like Martha does using a Brother P-Touch Labeling System. Sort your seeds by sowing date. An accordion file (the one seen here is from the Japanese store Muji) helps for easy reference and browsing.

Below 40 percent, it's best to buy fresh seed.
