Printable Seed Packets

My folks were great gardeners. When I lived further South my Mother gave me a fruit tree each year for a number of years. She said that later on, we would eat the fruit and think of her. Not that we needed to eat fruit to be reminded of her. She was a big, wonderful part of out lives.

Garden Memories

Fast forward some years, I was visiting a friend who had some gorgeous, burgundy coloured carnations. They were an old fashioned strain and highly fragrant. They were just like the ones Mum used to grow.

My friend gave me a few cuttings and now, two years on they are rampant and flowering wildly in the space I alloted for them.

Seeds as Gifts

What can you give to family friends who garden? How about seeds? It’s a nice, cheap gift for children to give. Taking the kids into the garden to gather seeds gives opportunity to talk, learn and prepare a heartfelt gift.

How to Make the Seed Packets

Trim along the outer lines.

Fold along the center of the packet and the lower tab lines.

Glue along the bottom and side tabs as indicated and join the packet together.

When dry add the seed details to the front, and maybe the name of the recipient.

There is also room on the back to add a message.

Gather seeds, put them onto a piece of foil and fold edges over to seal the packet and preserve the seeds. Pop the foil package into the seed envelope and seal closed.
