Question #9: Store seeds in a cool dark spot until needed. Keep your seeds dry.
Question #10: Before gathering any herbs, study the environment. Is it healthy or diseased? Is the environment chemically safe?

Remember that the plant stores the energy and air of the environment. If the area is polluted, then the herb is most likely also contaminated.
