I have a 90cm wide drawer of seeds in the utility room. I am also a bit of a hoarder so a lot of the packets are opened and/or past their sell by dates, but I can't bring myself to throw them away. I think the only ones that ever get thrown away are parsnips because I know they don't keep.
My OH has just made me a 2m x 30cm shelf over a radiator under the sitting room window because I ran out of space for the seeds I'd sown too early. GH isn't reliably warm enough yet.
When I go to the Garden Centre I always stop to admire the seed packets on the way to the plants. Often they fall accidently into my trolley.
I also have envelopes of collected seeds, some of which I forgot to write the date on, so I can't throw them away in case they are still viable.
Am I a seedaholic?
