I make my plant markers from old mini blinds. I cut a deep V at one end that goes in the ground and mark the top part with the name of the plant or row of seeds I’m planting. I also use anything I think would look neat as a plant pot outside: old wheel barrow, a picker’s basket, coal scuttles, even a toilet tank. A leather strap then hangs the basket on the tree on an old hook I found. It grows great shade plants like Begonias and Impatience plants. One year, I even planted a boot that had been thrown in the ditch by our place! IYAMCHEAP
