Plant Markers

Identifying plants in the garden is often difficult as many of them look alike with similar leaves or flowers.  Having colourful plant markers is a good way to help and it might stop us eating a plant that we should not be eating or it might help us avoid digging up something we want to keep.

Colourful plant markers are what we’re going to make in Project No 2: Plant Markers on the VPA Young Gardeners page. Click or tap on the project link to go straight there and take a look!

Note to Parents

These projects have been carefully put together by a team of us at the VPA to encourage all our children to have fun while learning.  Aspects of each project are designed to highlight growing and nutrition, environmental awareness, wildlife and even elements of maths, science, nature and history.  With all these tools we hope to encourage a new generation of gardeners who will gain positive attitudes in their lives to health, both physical and mental; and who will learn the relaxation to be found in gardening as well as the productivity and the joy of eating something that they have grown themselves.
