Keep your herb garden or vegetable patch in order
Takes 30mins Cost £0
Wood sticks or branches, approximately Dia1cm
Vegetable peeler Sharpie pen Clear nail varnish
Cut several branches from the garden and trim the wood to remove any shoots. Cut one end on a diagonal so that it’s easier to push into the soil. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the bark along the top of one edge and create a flat area. Leave the sticks to dry completely, which may take a few days. Use a Sharpie pen to write on the label to mark your herbs, vegetables or plants. Apply a coat of clear nail varnish over the writing to act as a protective layer. Place the sticks in each pot.
