Make plant labels out of tin lids
Tin can lids make great labels but you do need a special tin can opener that does not leave sharp edges. Once you have your lid, place on a piece of spare wood and drill a couple of holes near the edge of the lid. Thread a piece of wire or string through. Using a permanent marker write the name of the plant on the lid. You could also paint the lids first if you wish. These labels are particularly good for fruit trees. Simply hang the name of the variety in the branches. Make sure the label is removed before the branch grows too big and the wire cuts into it.
