DIY Seed Organizer
I’m one of those gardeners who buys more seeds than I can find space for in my garden, particularly when a pack comes with ten thousand seeds inside! Even if I manage to plant all of the seeds, the leftover package contains a lot of useful information that I like to keep handy. Seed envelopes usually list the characteristics of the plant and the particulars of growing the seeds: germination time, sowing instructions, planting instructions, growth size, light requirements, and ideal spacing. All of this makes the seed packet valuable to keep.

This simple seed organizer is an easy way to keep track of your seeds and create a mini reference library. To make the organizer I bought a small photo album with plastic pockets to hold 4×6″ photos. These are large enough for most seed packets.

Look for an album with binder rings that open so you can remove some of the pages. Seed envelopes are thicker than photographs (especially beans and peas) so take this into account when deciding how many pages to remove.

I used a bottled water label on both the front and the spine of the binder. If I were to make multiple seed organizers for different types of seeds, seasons, gardens, or years I could write this on the label as well. I wanted to make the organizer for just my new seeds, so I used oval labels inside the book to divide them into veggies, herbs, and flowers.

You could also use the oval labels on coin envelopes to store seeds you have collected from the garden.

Now that I have a place for all of my newly acquired seeds, l can be sure to get them in the garden before the space is filled up!
