Natural looking yet practical plant identifiers, easy to make and waterproof to boot!

Materials and Equipment:


  1. Before you start, clean and dry your stone completely.
  2. In attractive script (you may want to practice first on a piece of paper) write the common name or the scientific name of the plant you want the marker to identify.
  3. Allow the ink to dry completely before placing it in the garden. The marker is waterproof, but if it is placed in a sunny location, you may want to redo your marker after a year of two. Fortunately they are quick and cheap to make!

My daughter made me these strawberry markers for Mother's Day. She painted them with acrylic paints, then sprayed them with clear coat so that they could go outside.


I absolutely love them and hope to make more for other plants in the garden.
