Upcycled seed packet storage

By: Garden Gate staff
Do you have some leftover seed packets? Here’s a helpful way to store them until you need them again.

If you’re like Janice Robertson of Virginia, you plant a lot of seeds in spring and summer. But what to do with the pretty seed packets afterwards? Janice likes to keep the packets to store the leftover seed for next year, and she likes to be able to easily reference them. When she found some old CD cases, she discovered a way to keep her seed packets organized and quick to locate. She places the packets in empty CD cases and labels the spine with the plant name. Then all of the CDs go into a CD case holder, like the one shown in the photo here. You can find CD cases and holders at the thrift store. The decorative packets make a pretty addition to her garden storage shelf.
