I’ve been using my two trusty seeds boxes for years. I’ve talked about them before and I love the sturdy monthly tabs and the fact that they neatly fit two standard size packets of seeds side by side. I use one box for flower seeds and one for vegetables.
The problem is that for vegetables seeds I simply have too many, plus lots come in larger packets (eg peas and beans), so things spill over into whatever is handy, in the case above, an old egg box lid.
Now that the wonderful Ocado deliver all sorts, apart from food, I decided to take advantage and buy a new, larger, tin made by Burgon & Ball. It’s great as all my seeds fit inside. I may upgrade the monthly separator tabs as they are a bit flimsy (I’ll cut my own from thicker card, or re-enforce the ones included) but it does the job nicely and stops my extra seed piles from taking over the kitchen.
On a separate note, the flower seedlings arrived from Sarah Raven at the weekend, and have been planted out. I have no room to pot them up in the greenhouse and they were quite a good size so they’ve gone into the ground direct. We had lovely sun all weekend and today rain, which is almost a blessing, as I wont have to worry about them drying out.
On the whole, it’s looking promising out there, I just hope the wood pigeons, slugs and mice stay away, I will be heartbroken to find all the hard work munched.
