Download our DIY seed packet templates

Download our template to make your own seed packets for seed collected from plants in your garden, perfect for passing on to friends.

We all love the process of collecting seed from plants in our gardens, and even better sharing them among friends, so we decided to create our own Gardens Illustrated DIY seed packets template which you can download to print out and then make at home.


In eight subtle colours featuring a polka-dot design, there is a generous space on the front for you to write the plant’s name and any other notes on where harvested, flower colour, sowing instructions etc.

Download the PDF below and follow the simple instructions to make. You will need a printer (preferably colour), A4 paper, scissors and double-sided tape/glue. And some seeds, of course!

It’s a great way to recycle waste printer paper that’s already printed on one side, or you could even experiment with coloured paper.
