Spring into action

Just as a shiny new pencil case and stationery would give me a thrill before the forthcoming school year, tonight I’ve enjoyed sorting out my seed-storage before the next growing season.

Nothing fancy, but a £3 transparent plastic box with 12 homemade month dividers (tip from Gardeners’ World Mag) have replaced the jumble of packets in an old Quality Street tin.

Thing is, 90% of my packets have sowing times in March or April…I’m already having a mild panic about how I’m going to manage it. I’m thinking, no trips away, no work, and set up camp at the ‘lotty for 8 weeks!

How does everyone organise their seeds ‘n’ stuff? Do other UK readers covet Monty Don’s gawjus seed cabinet as seen on BBC Gardener’s World….or is that just me?!

    • My instinct is to alphabetise, but I thought the idea of sorting into sowing months was nifty. However, most things have sowing periods of several months – and of course that can change to an extent with the weather – so perhaps it’ll trip me up!


  1. Mine are in an old biscuit tin supposedly in alphabetical order though they do get a bit messed up. I could do with a better system. Definitely covet Monty’s seed cabinet, along with the rest of his potting shed!
