Plant signs help everyone know where seeds have been planted and help others learn the names of new plants.

There are no rules when it comes to sign making. Use a variety of different resources to create descriptive, colourful and fun signs that will add another dimension to the garden space.

You really can use anything to create signage: bricks, rocks, wood or recyclable materials
like old signage that can be repainted. Use our list as a guide only, taking into consideration that the possibilities are endless!

Equipment

What to do

  • 1. Decide the names you would like painted on the signs.

  • 2. Nail the sign to a stake, using one nail at the top and one at the bottom. Adult supervision is necessary for this step.

  • 3. Lay down the drop sheet.

  • 4. Lay out the paints and the signs on the drop sheet.

  • 5. Paint the names onto the signs and decorate.

  • 6. Use as much creativity as possible when creating the signs, making sure they are legible.

  • 7. Hammer the signs into place in the garden.
