Sorry for such a dull answer, I just use envelopes!
I might have to start making some. In this electronic age I don't get many envelopes to recycle.
I bought a little packet of wage packets and I've put them in a tupperware box. This is the first year I've collected seed so looking forward to the results. Already sown some astrantia as I've been told they like a cold start.
I use brown paper envelopes from tesco.
Sometimes I make my own but I normally use brown money envelopes brought from Tesco cheap and good size.
But heres a website to try blank template at top of page, others with pictures on as well.
lots of different websites to try just search for homemade seed packets.
Hi I manufacture seed packet envelopes, these being white phalmahyde free,
that you can put through a printer, or coloured ones with white areas to fill in your seed
details! please let me know if you would like any more info!
Flower bird, you need to keep seeds cool and dry - the airing cupboard will be too warm and shorten their life. You can use it to dry out seeds for a couple of days if they are damp when collected, but move them to somewhere cool after that.
I'm with Jean R, I got a whole load of tiny brown wage packet envelopes in a street market 3 years ago. All the seed packets are kept in a plastic tray in the unheated porch, just by all the coats, it seems to suit them!
My local post office sells small, narrow brown envelopes for about £1, there are 50 in the packet. Ideal size for seeds.
