I was wondering where you can get those little wax paper seed envelopes?

Anyone know? Or have any they might want to sell, looking for about twenty or so I guess.

Thanks.

No idea, I just use the little zip lock bags that are 3cm x 3cm. I got them on eBay, 100 for $1

Those are handy for posting seeds IXOXI, but for storing seeds it is actually better to let the seeds get a little bit of air otherwise they end up suffocating. I have plenty of those zip lock bags.

Thanks cactuscook, that would be great if you could send some along. Hmm I will have a look into these glassine envelopes. Thanks for that.

Ahhh, ok. I thought they would do better dry, so that they wouldn't get moldy or anything. Well, I rarely keep seeds for more then a couple of weeks anyhow, unless they are ones that need a cooling off time before planting.

Thanks for that. They look a bit cheaper than the ones you first mentioned.

If money is a real issue, you could always try storing them in a pharmaceutical fold. Doesn't cost anthing and you can make them out of almost any sheet of paper.

If my memory is correct the first ones i got were the around the same price but postage was a killer around $30 from the UK. This is the best price we have come across so far. Very Happy

There's a place in Blacktown, NSW that has sells glassine envelopes. All they do is stamps and coins. I buy pocketed protective plastic sheets that fit a 3 ring binder from them.
The website is:

I have no idea on the prices for the envelopes, but I know I have seen them there.
