Purchasing packets of seeds vs. pre-grown plants is one of the most inexpensive ways we gain a variety of flowers and vegetable for our gardens, without the hefty price tag. One simple tip for maintaining your "library of seeds" is to create a system for filing the seed packets as you add to your collection. Start by taking an old recipe card holder and re-tabbing the sections in one or two ways. 1) Organized by Season (fall, winter, spring, summer) - in this case you add the packets of seeds in the section for when the seeds need to be planted. This also an easy and nice reminder of when you need to get started, for which plants. Alternatively, you can 2) Organize Alphabetically - in which you would systemize your packets based on the plants name. This can be helpful for our avid-gardening enthusiasts who are already aware of the peak planting seasons, and are more interested in identifying types of plants. We recommend using a plastic or metal recipe box for their durability and air-tight features. Keep the seeds inside their packets, as well add any additional planting tips or information you deem helpful to reference.
