Veg/plant Markers


Veg/plant Markers

A great way of keeping track of what's planted where and also if you ever move your plants/veg on some kind of rotation you can move your markers around with them. All you need is some large pebbles, a little paint (gloss works well for me) and a little imagination.Hel.xxx.

Love it!
The stones hereabouts are mainly flints
but when I venture further abroad I shall be on the look out for lovely stones like these.
Thanks for the idea, Hel.

Looking forward to seeing yours when you've painted them, Kath.
I wonder if Gillian will add these to her range of painted stones for the store ?

Gillian would liven up her stones rather similarly to her gnomes -
with fancy dress.....

Thanx guys. Dee always a darling thanx babe!

Terratoonie G.H. stands for Go Hel no really its 'Grey Hound' as in type of cabbage I thought it would work out well for the many types of cabbage we intend to grow!

Gillian you very welcome to keep track of me at the moment I'm just sorting out an idea with an old Simpsons Chess set the parts of which are going to be used in a certain useful way in the garden/allotment.Hel.xxx.

Great thread here enjoyed reading

I am a foster carer and every child I have looked after has had the choice to paint their name on a large pepple they have chosen from a trip to the seaside. Together we find a place in my garden for it to lay. They love finding the numorous names scattered! Next year my veg will be labelled this way! A brilliant extension of such a simple idea,also giving me the chance with a paint brush!! So looking forward to it. THANKS

What a great idea - at least you can reuse these each year!!
