Natural Plant Markers

Plant MarkersMake your own natural plant markers. Write the names of plants (using a permanent marker) on the flat faces of stones of various sizes and place them at or near the base of your plants. You can even write the plant spacing (1, 4, 9, 16) on the other side of the rock for future reference.
