People used to store seed in amphora shaped vessels made of clay the hypothesis being in some circles that it makes the seed last longer. Don't think anyone has done any studies on this though.

I share Tom's attitude that to store it you have to grow it. If it too much hassle or I am too stupid to grow it properly after a few failed attempts I usually give up and move on to something else.

I have also noticed self seeded stuff grows really well. Lots of beetroot this season and I didnt plant any of it
