When sowing seeds either in a pot or outside in the open ground you need to record the name of the plant on a marker of some sort. While you can just mount the empty seed packet on a short stick there are more attractive ways to remind you what you have planted. These ten ideas which I came across on the Bless My Weeds website would make an ideal DIY project for the winter months.

These might even make fun gifts for the favorite gardener on your list.
