Herb Garden Labels
Labeling your herb garden is sooo important. It is like wearing a name tag at the meeting, you know your name but the others who visit you may not. Over the years we have seen a variety of creative labels. Above are cute watering cans stakes that were turned into labels. I have seen the same done with a teapot shape for a herb tea garden.
This is a homemade wooden stake that was painted white and the name is printed on with a thick Sharpie brand marker. The boards can be cut to varying heights so that the tall ones can be used with tall dill or fennel plants and thyme can have a shorter label. If you don't have access to wood boards, white mini-blinds can be recycled and used as a plastic label and again cut to varying heights.
This pottery style is what we sell in The Rosemary House. With over 75 names available it is easy to label your whole garden with these pretty labels.
This charming label below was used to decorate a children's garden in a community garden.
