Growing Spelt Sprouts

Growing Spelt Sprouts

Spelt is best stored in a cool location - at Sproutpeople, we keep it in a freezer. If you plan on storing it for more than 3 months you should use a cool location, because, it is, on ocassion pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself warned =:-}

Happy Sprouting!
