Seeds must be maintained at temperatures no less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit and does not have long shelf lives. Damage to the seeds results when they are allowed to dry out excessively, damaging the intracellular structures of the seeds, along with the forming of toxic chemicals within the seed.

Biennial plants, when exposed to extreme climate conditions, may have a shortened life cycle of a few months especially if the plants were exposed to colder than normal temperatures. Most biennials can be...
