Use plastic forks as markers/labels

Aside from stones, you may also use plastic forks that are labeled accordingly. Once done, carefully stick them into the pot or patch of land. Just make sure to avoid the area where your plants are expected to emerge.

Recycle old bottles for garden edging purposes

Divide your garden space by using old bottles for edging. To add color to your space, you may choose to paint plain bottles or use colored pieces to save on time. Simply "plant" the upper part of the bottle and follow a straight line until you've reached the end of the area that you want to separate.

Reuse candy containers as seed organizers

If you have small plastic containers or boxes that were used to store candies, don't throw them away just yet! Clean the containers and use it to keep tiny seeds organized. Make sure you add proper labels as well. Since these pieces are small, it will be easier for you store them inside a shed or gardening toolbox.
