You know those little baggies that your extra buttons come in when you buy a shirt or pants? Save them.
If you’re into gardening, or any type of craft that requires the storage of small objects, these little baggies are a great solution.
Seeds don’t keep as well in paper as they do in plastic bags. So, once you open a seed packet, you’ll want to transfer the remaining seeds into a plastic bag that seals.
Here’s a bonus tip: don’t fret too much if you get around to deadheading the flowers on your annuals a bit late. After all, then you can gather seeds to use for next year.
Recently I saved some of the dianthus flowers that I deadheaded. I removed a few of them too early, but several of them had viable seeds in them.
