USE SEEDS AS LIGHTWEIGHT CHRISTMAS GIFTS

If you need a lightweight, cheap, but thoughtful gift, slip a packet or two of seeds into your Christmas card to a gardening fan. You may know their favourite flower or vegetable - choose that and wrap with a small amount of festive ribbon and slip inside their Christmas card. Choose a slightly larger type greetings card (perhaps about A5 size) and you will be sure to have space to get the seed packets in.
Even better, if you harvest, dry and pack seeds from your own garden with a home-made seed packet (get a template HERE) showing a photo of how the plants looked in your garden it will probably cost even less.  
Don't forget to include growing instructions!
