Temperatures out at our rural mailbox are hovering around -15 degrees C, will the seeds be destroyed if heavily frozen?

A customer has a question or concerns and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

“I am concerned about delivery of my order. Temperatures out at our rural mailbox are hovering around -15 degrees C and we cannot check every day. Will the seeds be destroyed if heavily frozen?”

They should be fine. Let them rest for at least 24 hours at room temp before starting to germinate.

depends on how much the cold got to them in reality. should be fine if say. germinate as ILGM says, wet paper towel method is the bomb. good luck

They will be fine. Just remember in the wild the seed actually gets frozen all winter. But when the spring comes :seedling:

The seeds are mostly oil and wouldn’t freeze.

I put mine in the freezer, although this probably isn’t the most ideal place, it’s not bad if you never take them out like @Nug-bug said once moisture starts to melt it can penetrate shell and begin germination.

They won’t be destroyed though
