    The earlier you sow them, the more germination rate you get...always the same rule, isn't true?

    Yes but how many months will they stay viable. Say: 2, 4, 6, 8. Can anyone answer?

    The Savage Garden says that highland seed can last a few weeks in the fridge, but the cool temps will kill lowland seed. Otherwise, all it says is, "very short lived." Good luck!

    gracilis is like bicalcarata, the seeds only stay viable for a couple of weeks. The other species should last much longer, but it does affect viability. Seeds of some species can last up to 2 years, but germination rates will often be poor.
