13 Creative Ways to Mark Your Garden

, , 4 Comments

Garden markers are useful in at least three situations: 1. your garden is so neat and orderly, you mark the sections simply to show them off; 2. your garden (or memory) is so chaotic, you need markers to constantly orient yourself; or 3. you don’t actually have an outdoor garden, but you pretend you do by marking your indoor herb plants.

In any case, garden markers are so pretty, it’s hard not to want them.

    Fabulous selection, thank you for including my upcycled markers!! By the way, I think reason #4 would be when you send your significant other out to the garden for a few sprigs of sage and he comes back with chives! (no names ;P )
