Printer’s Drawers & Seed Storage

Remember when this was kind of a thing?

printer drawers for seed storage by rochelle greayer

My aunt had one with a collection of little things that thoroughly excited me as a little kid.  But as a clutter-hating adult, I now look at it as more of a torture device.

But this kind of purpose makes me quite happy…

…even though I haven’t quite worked out how to store it (without buying an entire printer’s drawer set) and without the high chance of catastrophic spills.

But if I were a seed seller this is what I would do….because the idea of the whole thing is compeltely pleasing, Don’t you agree?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Yes! Lovely but I think that looking at all those seeds would make me absolutely frantic to plant something, anything.

    I remember my grandparents had a similar drawer (maybe shadow boxes) of seeds. It was quite common for all of the older generation to have these on display. The drawer had a groove in the upper lip so that a piece of glass slid over the seeds and held them in place. That is until the squirrels and birds learned to open them.

    Thanks for sharing. I have not thought of that in years.
