Hortus Botanicus Seed Packets

Now here's a cool way to make your own custom seed packets! I picked these up at Hortus Botanicus on my last trip to Mendo. Looks like they used coin envelopes and printed labels using their own photos of plants in bloom. Very classy and very clever.

Inside the envelopes, seeds were stored in smaller waxed paper envelopes. Germination instructions were tucked inside as well.

Not sure where to find coin envelopes? See this GardenWeb thread.


  1. Awesome! I love giving out seeds. I have handcrafted envelopes in the past, but this might become my new way of packaging.

  2. I bought some seeds from them on Ebay, and I thought the same thing! I especially liked the pics and detailed cultural!
