    I have a small separate category for gardening.

    My preference if it were my budget would be a separate category, but you could work with the categories you already have set up, and keep a separate tally of everything garden related. That might help you decide next year if the expense is sufficient to deserve its own categoty.

    I would add a "gardening" category. Seeds aren't the only cost of having a garden...do you buy potting soil, tools, fertilizer, or anything else? If so, that would all go in that category.

    I'd simply make a gardening category and put everything in there: seeds, soil, tools, etc.
