Personally I'd store them in a Brown Paper Bag and put them in a dark place {Hot Press} til' Spring...others may think differently...

Thank you both for replying. I think I'll chance a few in Sept just to see how they grow.

I keep my seeds (collected and bought and opened) in an airtight plastic box in the fridge. Chilled is better than warm.
