How to make plant markers out of a large, quart-size yogurt container:
- Wash and remove label, if possible.
- First cut straight down one side and then cut off top rim using sturdy scissors.
- Make straight cuts down the side every ¾” to 1”.
- Cut off the bottom of container and trim each marker at an angle to create a pointed tip.
Labeling and marking plants helps eliminate errors and prevent confusion. Markers are easy to write on with a Sharpie to display the plant name. Use these markers when starting seeds or transplanting seedlings into pots or into the ground.
