Week 39 - Home-made plant labels
7 upcycled plant labels
Use a potato peeler to remove a section of bark from a thin twig and then write in pencil or pen on the shaved part.
Save your corks, push them into a thin stick and write on them in permanent marker. You could even stick them into the end of old forks.
3. Ice lolly (popsicle) sticks
Save all those ice lolly sticks and use them with either permanent marker or pencil. You could also paint them with blackboard paint and write with chalk.
4. Wooden clothes peg
So simple - just clip it on the side of the pot/tray
5. Flat pebble or stone
Next time you are at the beach collect some flat surfaced stones and paint plant names on them. You can also add painted pictures if you are arty enough!
6. Old plastic cutlery
Don't chuck them - use them as labels so at least they are no longer single use plastic. (As an extra you can also stick forks in the ground prongs side up to deter cats using your seed bed as a toilet!)
The wind blew some slates off our roof recently which broke into pieces. They won't be wasted though as they are ideal now as plant labels.
