I love seeds! The ritual I spoke about in an earlier post of studying the new catalog every season, making a trip to the Diggers shop and purchasing a few, OK lots, of little paper envelopes, you all know the ones I mean……
Once the precious cargo is home, how do you store your seeds? I started with a couple of glass jars in the early days then an old ice cream container and most recently 2 cardboard boxes, I have divided vegetables and flower seeds now that I have so many.
From what I have read some seed will keep for a maximum of 10 years in optimum conditions. I certainly don’t have these conditions and should compost old seed earlier but I find it super hard. I have started sowing old seed and if none germinate I compost them packet and all. With all of that I still have lots of seeds.
I have been asking Mr. Gardeninghands to make me a wooden seed box for a little while now and with my most recent purchases asked again and he whipped one up over the weekend. It is fantastic! Its light, I have been carrying it over to the green house, I can bring it inside when the temperatures are extreme and there is room for more seeds just in case…..
Would love to know how you are storing your seed?
