Seed Packet Design

I do that Nut but like to keep the packet for reference or if I stagger sewing/planting.  If they just had a blank bit at the top of about half an inch then start the narrative it would be helpful as the actual foil pack is teeny weeny and only uses a quarter of the pack anyway.  Maybe I ought to contact a few seed producers with a design!

Yes, it's probably got a fungal infection and not worth saving - sorry

Sowed mine today Mikey so they should be up in about a week then? (Hopefully)

Anyone else from Rochdale

Don't give up Mikey - not everyone will have been on the forum yet this weekend.

Good luck though.

I have been sowing lots of seeds this morning and every year I manage to chop off the top of the seed packet and destroy some of the vital information.  I then spend some time stapling and sellotaping back the destroyed information.

Does anyone have a technique for opening packets efficiently or should they re-design packets in a more user friendly way?

Such interesting pictures Steve.  Forgive my ignorance, but what is the bridge in the last one?

I suppose snails that have been hurled over the fence might be being hurled back to you.

I have a vision of snails whizzing through the air back and forth over fences in the British Isles.

Very exciting news Sweet Pea.  All very good advice given above.  Also when you get your plot, if it is overgrown, just take it a little at a time and don't do too much and hurt your back - just small manageable chunks at a time.  Let us know when you get your plot.
