This Gorilla Epoxy project came about when I realized that, really, I do need plant markers.
Whether or not I need them, our apartment building neighbors with whom we share our back yard garden need them if I’m serious about “you can cut what you need” from the culinary herbs.
Ah, but from what to make them? I was chatting this over with our friend and neighbor, Mark Silva, who showed up later that afternoon with a few old architectural samples and the most delightful thin wood squares. They recently installed an attic door and he had cut original pine from the c. 1900 ceiling. It still smelled like pine.

A Few Notes:
1. Check for fit by fitting the pieces to be glued together before applying any glue.
2. Once you mix Gorilla Epoxy, you have 5 minutes to use the amount you mixed. Have everything staged and ready to go before squeezing it out of the tube.
3. If you use heavier items for markers, such as little tiles, bend a length of coat hanger (or other stiff wire) in half to make a two-pronged stake instead of the single-pronged stakes I made. Glue the bend to the tile. The little single-pronged stakes may swivel with the weight of a top-heavy marker.
4. Read the full package instructions before using.
I need to seal these markers and I left a few totally blank until I finish a final flower bed. They turned out exactly how I hoped – easy to read, easy to relocate, easy to adjust height and compact. Now other folks can spot the summer savory and not think it’s tarragon
