I have been searching for a while now for a simple but effective way to sort my seeds. I have gathered up quite a collection over the past few months. I just can't seem to say no when I see something new.
I tried to see what other people do, but mostly found others sorting them into months to sow. This wasn't going to help me because here in Durban I can sow most things anytime. So I decided to sort by plant types.
Here is my seed box before sorting:
I divided them into similar plant families. So we have:
Peas and beans
Squash and cucumber
Tomato, peppers and eggplant
Herbs and flowers
Other (which only contain rhubarb and artichoke at the moment)
Also added in a fruit container not seen here as I found I had quite a few fruit seeds.
