Matchbox for Spreading Small Seeds

When you are handling very fine seeds for planting up. Select a dry matchbox (empty) put the seeds into it, add some silver sand (very fine sand you will buy in any gardening store). Give box a little shake, mixing seeds with sand. When you're ready to plant, open box slightly and sprinkle in nice straight rows along your garden drills or where you are planting seeds. Proceed to grow, separate, etc.
