A good friend of mine Cam recently gave me some wise advice “You need a new seed box.” We were swapping veggie seeds and he had found the radish seeds I was asking for – in my own seed collection. Ooops. Upon further inspection I found multiple packets of the same seeds, poor lost unlabelled seeds, and some seeds marked beans, that clearly were not beans! Oh goodness, my seedy looking seed collection that was stored in a large, sad looking zip lock bag really did need a spring clean….
So I set about finding a new way to store my seeds, and found some wonderful inspiration and tips on seed storage from Tricia at Little Eco Footprints. I found a little wooden box, cut up some cardboard to create dividers and catergorised the seeds into summer, winter and all year round veggies. I bought new seed packets and arranged the seeds in alphabetical order in the fitting category. Inside the paper packets, I’m aiming to store the seeds in small zip lock bags.
How’s your seed storage going?
