Excellent response. Check germination rates and find out.

But as long as seeds are kept in a cool, dry, dark place, they will last for many years. I've planted clover seed that had been kept in airtight containers in my basement for 15 years, and they germinated just fine.

I would plant them anyway......you will get some germination from them.
