Default how do seed co. get 15 tiny seeds into an envelope

I was just wondering, my guess is it is a vacuum line with tip or tips.

If the packet says 15 seeds i usually get 17 or 18.

More likely they are vibrated onto a scale in a packaging machine and dropped into the envelope by weight.

The three-armed packagers count out on their digits.

Some of the old vintage machines are pretty cool.
