Seed Box

When I started my garden adventure, I only had a few baggies of seeds. Storing them together in a ziplock bag worked fine. But then I bought some seeds for other interesting vegetable varieties, wanted to grow some herbs too, and some flowers would be pretty too… Also, most baggies contain way too much seeds to use up in one year. So the result was the mess below:

I wasn’t really happy about that, but I didn’t have a good solution. I found some suggestions online, but they were either not really a solution, or rather expensive. And then I saw a picture of a seed box made from two shoe boxes on pinterest. That was an ideal solution, I’ve got enough old boxes around, it’s cheap and easy, and it fits in the closet where I keep my seeds.

For making one yourself, you need 2 shoe boxes (or other suitable boxes), a scissor, glue and some tape. Cut dividers for the first box from the second box, make them slightly higher/broader and fold the excess, put glue on the excess and stick the dividers in the box. Make extra secure with some tape. If you want, you can put category names on the dividers, I didn’t because I did not know yet which categories I need.
