Organize those seed packets


New Feature

If you're like most folks, your seed packages end up in a shoebox, or bound together with a rubber band, and you have to dig through them hoping to find what you know is there when planting time comes. Over on, Greg Holdsworth provides step-by-step directions for an organized storage system:

    I store all kinds. Some in gallon containers, until the next season. Your offering is brilliant. I will have one soon. Thanks

    I still don't get why anyone needs to store seeds. Don't they get used?? Why buy packets and then store them??

    Looks nice, but I buy my seeds only a couple of weeks or days before planting, Don't really need a bulky box to store them. I just put them into a zip lock bag til it's time. Maybe if I had a farm.....
