New Seeds VS Old Seeds

Almost two weeks ago on the 29th of April Jake and Viva started some seeds in a flat of jiffy pots. Viva used flower seeds that Grandma Vicki gave us two years ago...or maybe last year. Jake was given some much older seeds. Seeds that I or great-grandma had stored away for a decade or longer. Maybe two decades, possibly three. 

Here are the results of their efforts:

Viva had 24 of 25 pots grow plants: 96% success rate. Jake has had 0 plants grow: total failure. It's my fault for giving him old seeds, but seriously--0%?! We will be visiting a nursery and I will throw all my old seeds out. ZERO?!
