Seed freezing

Hi All,  Earlier some people were talking about keeping seed in the freezer. I remember reading last year on the internet about a large European program to find and store as many world wide native species seed as possible. I forget the name of the project. They were keeping the seed frozen, I presume in much colder temps than my deep freeze can produce.  I am curious if South Africa has contributed any seed for that project. Since so many bulbous species are native there.  Justin Woodville, TX 8b/9a
