SORT YOUR SEED STOCKPILE
Most gardeners are guilty of stockpiling packets of seeds… only to then buy more each spring. To break the habit, sort your seeds now. Opened packets should be sown first, as should those with fast-approaching best-before dates. If you have an abundance of organic seeds, sprout any spares. And if you have heaps of flower seeds, mix them all together to make your own wildflower mix to scatter over a patch of bare ground in spring. Make sure the ground is clear of any weeds first. Plant extra in small pots to give to friends and family.
