Method 1: The Seed Binder
Post it tabs or binder dividers
Baseball card protectors
Sharpee / Pen
If you look closely, my seeds are divided into seasons and types.
Some seeds may be planted in both spring and fall, but are more successful in the fall. If you find this to be the case, it is easy to move your seeds to the tab which is their “better season” based on your growing experience.
Method 2: Seeds in a Box
Coin Envelopes / Seed Packets
Some people use shoe boxes or index card boxes. I was lucky enough to receive an heirloom mahogany box from my mother-in-law.
We place seeds that we harvest from our garden in these sturdy coin envelopes from Amazon.
I try to label the seeds by variety and note the date of harvest on the upper right corner of the seed packet.
I’ve seen other friends store their seed packets in shoe boxes and sort them with labeled index card dividers too. What ways have you found to be helpful for organizing your seeds?
