Free, Easy, Permanent Plant Tags

Well, pretty much permanent...

Here is a way to mark your plants that won't cost you anything and will last for a loooonnnnggg time.

Save your lids off your canned food.  Most gardeners can something.

Pick up an inexpensive stamp set. Here is one at Amazon.com.

Now you just need a hammer.
I punch the name of the plant on the lid and punch a hole in the top with a nail.  Now you just attach it to a stake or directly to a pot with a bit of wire.  Easy, cheap and (somewhat) permanent - what more could you ask?!

Get your hands dirty!


  1. Ok, this is so clever and simple, I feel stupid for not thinking of it. Brilliant.

  2. I like it! I bet they look cool too. Happy New Year to you.
