As you no doubt can tell I try to utalise most things and use them in my garden. Now this tip saves you throwing away those empty egg boxes.
Egg boxes make an ideal collecting container for the many sorts of free seeds that nature gives to the patient gardener. Forage for those dead flower stems and gently tap the seeds from the seed cases or flower heads into the box compartments - remembering to label each lot of seeds as you go along.
Back indoors, carefully cut out the compartments and trasfer each lot of seeds into individual envelopes (home-made of course) and mark with details of when collected etc. Store the envelopes until sowing time.
