Getting Organised: Free Seed Keeping Label Templates for Recording on Packets

In last week's post on Seed Packaging, Storage, and Labelling I promised follow-on freebie this week for recording information on seed packets. There are four free seed keeping information templates to help with different types of labelling for different packets, including full labels for gathered seeds and supplemental labels for pre-packaged and purchased seeds. These are very simple freebies, but I have to confess that they're already shaping up to be one of the most useful additions to my garden planning and organisation tool kit. I wish I'd started using them sooner!

Getting Organised: Seed Packaging, Storage and Labelling

It's the last week of official summer here in New Zealand (calendar, not astronomic) and I have seeds on the brain, both gathering from the garden and sorting through my stash for autumn planting since we're lucky enough to be able to grow the whole year round.  We have a seed collection post in our archives packed with tips for gathering and storing seeds from the garden, so pop on over if you're looking for ideas as well as a few pitfalls and problems to avoid.  Whether you are buying, gathering, or swapping seeds, the basics of seed storage are fairly straightforward, but actually keeping things organised can be a whole different story. Anyone else feel my pain, fellow gardeners?  Read on for seed storage ideas/inspiration and stay tuned for new freebies in the works!
