How to Make Plant Markers from Broken outdoor ceramic Pots

Need to identify plants in your garden but don’t want to use those little plastic garden markers? Get creative by repurposing old, broken outdoor glazed pots to use as plant markers. You can even give the illusion that the plants are growing right out of the pots with the right angle and design.
Method 1 of 3: Deciding Where the Markers are Needed


Identify an area in your garden where pot plant markers will be effective. This will help you to gain an idea of how many markers to make. Typically you’ll need a bit of space so you can surround the planted greenery with the pot, however you could trim a potted plant in a smaller garden using a smaller size.


Measure the area around the specific plant. A tape measure is handy but even eyeballing the area to determine the pot size will work well too.
Method 2 of 3: Making the Plant Markers


Choose a ceramic pot piece for each specific plant. Since each plant may take up a different amount of space, you'll want to customize the marker for each plant’s size.


Write the plant name around the top of the glazed ceramic pot piece. Make sure it's written clearly so that you can read the name.
Consider using a stencil to create uniformity. This takes more effort but might be best for a showpiece area of your garden, such as a herb garden or a special vegetable plot.
Allow time for the writing on the pot piece to dry before adding it to the plant area.
Method 3 of 3: Positioning the Plant Marker

Embed the pot around or near the plant. Try a few positions before deciding where it sits best (don’t embed the pot deeply into the soil until you are sure you like the location). Done!

How to Grow a Container Garden with an outdoor glazed pot

It is still possible to enjoy gardening even if one does not have a large yard. Container gardening utilizes smaller spaces on patios, decks or other sunlit areas to grow your favorite vegetables in outdoor glazed pots.

Choose a sunlit area to place the plants. Make sure they have plenty of room between them to grow and be watered.
Decide which plants you want to grow. Not all vegetables can be grown this way; choose varieties that are designed for pot growth. Since space for the plant is limited, choose plants that don't need a large radius to thrive. An easy way to know is that the plant name will have words such as "patio", "bush," "dwarf" or "miniature" in the title (good examples of these are toyboy tomato, patio tomato etc.) Bush plants and root plants such as peppers, onions, and carrots will also do well.
Choose a good glazed planter. Each plant needs at least a 5 gallon container to grow to prevent it from being root bound. Smaller ceramic garden pots may be useful for smaller plants or root plants. Also each pot needs to have drain holes to prevent root rot. Avoid terracotta or dark colored pots which dry out quickly. Cans can also be used. Tin cans are generally good for smaller plants like herbs, while larger cans can sometimes accommodate small veggies.
Choosing potting soil. It is usually best to use bagged potting soil for your outdoor ceramic garden pot because it already has the balanced nutrition your plants will need. It is also free of bacteria and bugs that are in ground soil. Good potting soil will have a mix of peat moss and vermiculite. Each type of crop will require slightly different soil mixtures and planting depths, so make sure to plant accordingly.
Check the moisture of the soil at least two times a day. Potted gardens need more watering than regular gardens because of the confined space. Do not wait till the plant is wilting to water it.
Check to make sure plants are getting around 5 hours of direct sunlight a day. Some plants, such as cabbage, can live in shaded areas, but others thrive in full sun like cucumbers.
