Born out of necessity: a wooden seed storage box with just the right number of compartments, sturdy metal hinges, and a shiny clasp.

After London-based garden blogger Sarah Graveling of Franklyn & Vincent designed a wooden seed box to hold her own seeds, “Last Christmas my uncle was sharing some of his pak choi seeds with me and he produced this battered old shoe box,” she said. Seeing his box, I figured I might have a market.”

The next step? Her Mighty Seed Box, available in three colors (all of which we want):

So I bought a plain box and customized it.”
