A garden seed box will help keep everything in one place and they make delightful gifts, too. There are plenty of seed boxes on the market, from robust, steel tool boxes to personalised, handmade containers.

While some gardeners may prefer a straightforward box with just a single space for storage, others may like to have sectioned seed storage boxes, which have been divided up for different purposes.

There are even seed organiser boxes with filing systems to help you organise the contents according to sowing date, so you’ll always know what you need to plant next.

Below, we’ve curated a list of various seed storage options, from wooden seed boxes from independent sellers to classic storage tins by heritage gardening retailers.

If you’re interested in other ways of staying orderly in the garden, we have shed storage ideas you may find useful, as well as a roundup of plant labels.

And as seed storage boxes can be as stylish as they are practical we have more ideas for creating an attractive outdoor environment with our list of the best garden clocks and unusual garden ornaments.
