Marigold Seeds - How long can I store them?

Hi,
If I get very fresh marigold seeds (directly from a seed producer) in a sealed foil package and store them in unopened packages in the frig, how long can I store the seeds and have good germination when planted?
Thanks,
Bob

Marigold seeds are said to be good for about three years, properly dried and stored. I suspect you would still get germination longer than that, but probably at a lower percentage of seeds germinating.

No need to store them in the fridge, however. Marigolds don't need a chilling period. A pantry cupboard would be a good location, for example.

Thanks. I appreciate the helpful information.
