I collect seeds from my yard, from friends and from the woods as I'm walking. I've acquired quite a few red poppy seeds on my strolls and saved them. When a friend mentioned that she wanted some local poppy seeds I volunteered some. Then I realized I had the chance to try a DIY project I thought up months ago.
Small corked bottles, seeds, twine or yarn and a little tag. Super simple.
You can write the name of the plant on the tag. I used my old electric typewriter and typed onto a brown paper bag. But you can make tags however you like. Or make labels and put them directly on the little bottles.
You could also whip up a card with planting instructions or a history about the plant. Maybe even the latin name of the flower would be a nice touch.
I've made several and keep them around as a lovely and tidy way to store the seeds I collect. Also, as a handy gift should the occasion arise.
