Saving Seed

Postby LisaW » Thu Jun 27, 2019 10:11 am

My partner is interested in saving seed, and has asked (for his birthday!) for a set of seed sieves.

I've tried Googling, but all I can find are either soil sieves (with mesh far too large), or industrial (and very expensive) ones.

Does anyone have any suggestions for where I could get seed sieves?

Thanks very much!

You could try asking Ben and Kate at Real Seeds for advice on where to buy.

Real Seeds were very helpful, and their site is well worth a look. Aside from selling seeds, they also give a lot of information about saving your own seeds :-) I will be having a go at that later in the year.

That's good to hear. I know Ben and Kate from growing seed for them in the past. They are passionate about what they do and great advocates for saving seed. Best of luck in your future endeavours.
