I make garden tags with terracotta pots
Forget about plastic and make room for noble materials! Terracotta and ceramics bring to the kitchen garden a touch of authenticity and a unique charm. For terracotta garden tags, simply recycle your broken or damaged pots. Write the name of the varieties on the ledge and bury the shards in the soil deep enough for the label to appear from the ground. If not in a large garden, we love the idea of spilling small pots on wooden spades!

I make garden tags with wooden spoons
What kitchen accessory is ideal for making garden tags with kids? The wooden spoon! The larger it is, the more space it has to write and draw the name of its vegetables and aromatics. For an optimal result, use a pyrograver, otherwise prepare the spoon with an undercoat of wood paint.

I make garden labels with cutlery
In stainless steel or plastic, forks and spoons are just asking for a second life of garden labels.

Depending on the material, the names of the varieties are engraved, pasted or painted …. If you opt for the forks, you can also plant the handle and insert a plastic label between the teeth.
