Seed saving kit

dirtdigr(5)May 7, 2009


I'm wondering if anyone has a homemade kit they've put together. Similar to the ones you can buy. Someone out there must have done this at some point :), I've searched everywhere for a homemade seed saving kit.

Hi Dirtdigr,
I figured someone would of posted to you by now. Maybe everyone is like me, and they don't think their method is very pretty or worth talking about.
I have a large plastic bag that hold used bags of all shapes and sizes to go out and collect seeds with, not very attractive at all, lol. I keep small scraps of paper and a couple sharpies to write names of plants on as I put them in a bag.
Once inside, I clean each type of seed and put them into a homemade seed envelope. Size of the envelope of course varies on seed quantity and size.
I have boxes I keep seeds in, not all good looking, though I did get one of those photo boxes at the craft store that looks nicer for seeds seeds I save from my flower garden since I need more room for those. You could use those.
I do have other separate category boxes. I have one each for:
~Tomatoes, I do use small coin envelopes for those since the seed is small, and I have too many to to use homemade packets for.
~Beans and peas, they take up a lot of room.
~Other Vegetables
~Flowers received in trade
~Flowers purchased

So to me those commercial seed saving kits are not any good since they only are good for a few varieties of seeds, but they do look pretty.
