Default How long to "season" bush bean seeds before planting them?Cross-pollination with pole beans?

Keep them cool and dry?? Cool as in refrigerator, or
just not near a radiator?

how long you planning on keeping them? if only a
year or two should be fine about anyplace out of the
direct sun and like you say, not near a radiator.

if you want to keep them longer, make sure they are
well dried, put them in an airtight container and
store them in a freezer. for best results not near
the edges (that may have defrosting heat cycling).
