In the garden, there is nothing more confusing than trying to remember what was planted where. Plant markers are the perfect way to identify your seedlings. While store-bought markers are fine, making your own plant markers is economical and easy — and a great project for students! Reminder: Use permanent markers on non-porous and semi-porous materials such as stone and plastic, otherwise the ink will wash away.
Popsicle sticks: Write the plant name on the popsicle stick and then place next to the appropriate plant.
Clothespins: Write on the flat side of the clothespin and then pinch onto your Pocket.
Used plastic forks/knives: Write the plant name on the handle!
Yogurt and Cottage Cheese containers: Cut strips out of a plastic container with scissors from the top lip down to the bottom in a straight line. Make your cuts between ½”–1″ apart. Then cut the strips off the bottom.
