My seed packets say to use by this year. Why? Can I freeze the unused seeds?

This is simply a best used by date and does not necessarily mean you have to use them all, though it's recommended. As long as you store the seeds in an airtight container until ready to use again, then they should be ok. Do not freeze the seeds though, as this will kill them.
