Andy et All:

Someone recommended the plastic zip bags years ago; the habit took. The one
point that seems to validate it , is the way that Thompson and Morgan sell
their seeds...not all their seeds though. Many of the seeds I buy from them
come in tiny waterpfoof packets, inside of a larger envelope. Of course
this could be because of the size of some of these seeds  at 10  @$4.98, so
I am not sure how valid a measure this is. I know this will help to answer
your question. :-)
