Great Ways to Organize Seed Packets

 It's that time of year for garden planning. You're at home gazing at all your seed packets and wondering how you're going to keep the dozens of varieties organized until it's time to sow, or at least from sliding all over the place. Because many of the employees at For The Garden, are also gardeners, they have collected some creative seed packet organization ideas over the years; many are simply re-purposed household items! Below are our favorites.
Shoe organizer: One of our employees organizes seed packets in a hanging shoe organizer by two criteria: sowing date and whether they are to be sown outside or inside. You'll be surprised at how many seed packets can fit in one shoe pocket!

Shoe Holder
Photo Album Sheets: Photo album sheets are just the right size for most seed packets. The sheets not only display them so you can easily see both sides, but they protect them, too. Consider creating tabs in a binder and separate them by sowing date and by inside/outside sowing recommendations.
Photo Album Sheets
Clothes pins and string: Perhaps the most decorative way to organize your seed packets is to clip them with clothes pins onto a string. This is a great way to brighten up an otherwise bland office space, den, or kitchen. Clip them on separate strings by sow dates.
