Cheap Plant Labels

Try these inexpensive ways to label your plants in the garden:

  • Take old clay pots and break them carefully into small shards. Label them with permanent marker or pencil and arrange them artfully beneath or alongside plants.
  • Rescue an old miniblind and separate the slats. Cut them with heavy shears into desired lengths, tapering one end. Label with marker or pencil. You can bury or just tuck them next to plants. Below the soil, the labeling doesn't fade.
  • Have the children gather small and medium stones to label. Place them in the garden label side up or down.
