How I Save My Vegetable and Herb Seeds

Use a dark filing box for saving seeds for your garden.


Last year I saved my vegetable and herb seeds in a clear plastic shoe box, until I found out that seeds need to be stored in dark containers in a cool environment. Oops. Having them organized has always been a big deal for me so this year I opted to use a dark file bin with some hanging file folders.

I didn't go so far as to sort each type individually although I may in the future. Instead I sort by herb, vegetable, flowers, and fruit. I love having my seeds organized and now I can store them in my cool, dark storage building where they will be secure from anything that may try and get in to them.
