DIY Plant Markers

Post  countrynaturals on 1/11/2018, 12:33 pm

Many of these are old hat and repetitious, but some of them are really cute and might give us some ideas. If nothing else, it's a kick in the pants to get us creative over the long, cold, dark, winter. Rolling Eyes

Great Website I really like the clothespins, I've been using old venetian blinds after the sun works on them cut them to about 6" put a point on one end they work good.

I've used plastic knives, plastic forks, and Venetian blinds for my markers. I don't have the talent to paint pretty pictures on them or to try fancy writing. One thing I did learn is to use a "fade resistant" permanent marker rather than an ordinary permanent (not) marker. Paint would probably be better still.

I like the clothespins, too. They'd be really good on vine plants that wander onto somebody else's turf. We could have one marker at the base and another that would move along the end so we'd know what to expect when the blossoms start. Rolling Eyes
