A Free Peter Rabbit Seed Packets Printable is a simple and fun way to welcome the new season with a touch of whimsy. Beatrix Potter’s A Tale of Peter Rabbit is one of our favorite springtime reads. The story is set in the English countryside, and among the quaint charm of Mr. Mcgregor’s garden, this story always encourages joy and curiosity.
Once we learned that Beatrix Potter’s illustrations were in the public domain, we couldn’t wait to get creative with her beautiful artwork. Seed packets were an easy place to start, as it is spring, and we have an abundance of seeds to gift to friends and family. Printing these seed packet templates is simple and easy. They make great baby shower favors, additional goodies in Easter baskets, a housewarming gifts for a new neighbor, and they are so much fun.
The hardest part about crafting these seed packets is deciding which one to print first. The free printable comes with ten unique Peter Rabbit seed packet designs. You can print all ten at once or a selection that best fits your needs. We saved a lot of pumpkin and sunflower seeds, so I printed that page first. Seed packets filled with homegrown saved seeds do make the perfect gift!
What is the history of Peter Rabbit?
The Peter Rabbit story, written by Beatrix Potter, originated in 1893 as correspondence between Beatrix and her governess’s son, Noel. Noel’s real-life rabbit inspired the tales, and his name was Peter. Beatrix began writing letters to cheer up young Noel, who was often ill.

Although it’s been 120 years, we continue to be smitten with the stories of Peter and all of the delight and joy he has brought to children and families.
What are the best places to get seeds for homemade seed packets?
Homemade seed packets are a great way to customize a party favor or special gift, but you don’t have to include seeds you’ve grown yourself. You can source your seeds from other companies and repackage the seeds into your custom packaging for a cohesive look.
Below I have included a few of my favorite places to purchase seeds. Some of the links are affiliate links, and I earn a small commission from any purchases you make through the links at no additional cost to you. Some of these companies offer discounts on bulk purchases or free shipping, which are benefits of purchasing from small companies.
