Herb Gardening Tips: Make Personalized Garden Signs

Add a do-it-yourself touch to your herb garden



Does your garden speak to you? There are lots of ways to talk back. These old garden trowels are entertaining plant labels, a shovel proclaims your whereabouts, and a painted rock ensures that you won’t overlook the spearmint.
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.
