    No chance of a Quick reply from me.
    On 31st December I sowed a trough of carrots in an unheated GH - they've germinated. They were from an opened packet, originally sown 12 Oct 2017.

    Go on, sow them.

    They should be fine - I regularly sow carrot seeds that are more than a year old. They don't keep as long as some seeds but a couple of years is usually fine. I doubt the fact that they are pelleted will make any difference.

    I’d still use them, though later in the spring if I were putting them outdoors. After all, you have nothing to lose...
    If they haven’t come up in a couple of months time, just put some other seeds/seedlings in the gap instead ;-)

    I hope so, because I've got some that I didn't sow last year. Waste not, want not and all...

    Fingers crossed for both of us (and anyone else).
