You can order seeds every month, go for it!
The Seed Bank's purpose is for people to expand their collections.
I have set it up so it's not too much work for me, it's a labor of love.
If you're frugal, you can time your requests and request one pack on the last day of a month, a different species on the first day of the next month.
Send in one sase and both seed packs can go in one envelope, saving two stamps and envelopes.
Besides that, seeds have a finite lifetime, even stored in the fridge.
If you take the seeds, grow them, and donate seed when yours mature, then the Seed Bank is restocked with fresh seeds.
This keeps the cycle going.
