Herb Gardening Tips: Make Personalized Garden Signs

Name that plant. It’s easy when you have a set of ­innovative plant labels like these. Flea-market finds such as wooden spoons and old silverware pop out of pots of culinary herbs. Tiny clay pots propped upside down on stakes (or resting on the soil of a garden bed) are a handy place to park that botanical name. Plant labels are also a good way to recycle metal scraps.
