Photo Boxes for Seed Organization

By BookerC1
November 16, 2011

The boxes intended for storage of photographs are a great size for organizing seed packets. Most even come with dividers marked with the letters of the alphabet. I use a green one for edibles, such as herbs and vegetables, and a pink one for ornamentals.

Glad so many people have found my idea helpful! I used to have a couple of cardboard boxes stacked on top of my bookcase, full of seeds, and I could never put my hands on the ones I wanted quickly. This has really solved that problem! It has really cut down on buying seeds I already have, too.

I also have notebooks with paper, graph paper, and a few pocket folders that color co-ordinate with these boxes. I keep one notebook with records of what I bought, from whom, where I planted it, etc. for flowers and ornamentals (pink, to match the seed box), and one for vegetables and edibles (blue, since I couldn't find a green one LOL). It is great to keep all those invoices, tags, and printed information about my orders in one place! I refer back to it often when adding plants to the database.

Storing seeds is an ongoing opportunity. This is a good solution.
I have them in several places about the house and garage. One day they will all end up in the box. Unfortunately by a freaky quirk, I know where all of the are located.

Thanks for a good tip, Booker!
