DIY Plant Markers
Create plant markers from castaways and items found in nature. All you need is a bit of time, creativity and paint.
Place a cork horizontally onto the tines of an old fork. Add the plant name to the cork with a permanent marker. Then dress it up with a bit of twine or ribbon. Add a few seed packets and a small bag of potting mix set them in a garden container ready to plant.
Gather interesting shaped stones and paint them to look like your favorite vegetables. Round ones for tomatoes, long and cylindrical for cucumbers or oval for an eggplant. Or paint a picture or write the name of the flower or vegetable on the stone in an eye-catching color.
Mount photos or pictures from last year’s seed catalogues onto old canning jar lids. Protect with clear adhesive and attach to a stake, chopstick, or slide it into the tines of a fork.
A bit more information: Save old mini blinds from the landfill. Convert them into durable plant markers. Cut the individual slat to the preferred length. Label with a permanent pen and you’re set.
