Make Plant Markers Out of Milk Jugs

These are cost free labels for any and all flower and/or vegetables you want to identify. They are cut from plastic milk bottles but any clear, or plain white plastic containers that were not holding dangerous liquids, (toxic, or hazardous to handle), are fine.


These are great for large pots, or to put on rows where seeds are started, and later can be attached to poles at the end of the same rows if poles are needed, as in pole beans, or if you have something that vines.

I find these very handy, because they are first of all, free, and with the permanent markers, they last a growing season. Smaller ones are perfect for small pots of "give to friends", or "trade with others" plants, and show that you were careful to identify, and even give growing instructions if needed.

Hope you enjoy this thrifty tip.
