what type of clematis seeds are they? and why do you want to store them?
do you know if they are viable seeds?

Hi

The problem with storing seed is the longer the seed is stored the less germination you will get , The seed needs to be plump and viable or it is a waste of time storing it in the first place .  Brown paper bags are the best for storing if you must , as air can get to them . The seed must be dry on the outer case , but I find it fatal to heat dry them , as drying the inner seed kills them  . Best of luck with your seeds
