Vinyl Window Blinds as Plant Labels

When you’re dealing with hundreds of seedlings, you quickly realize how important it is to LABEL EVERYTHING.

Many seedlings look the same - especially if you are growing a multitude of varieties of basil or marigolds...

But why buy labels if you have some vinyl window blinds? They are sturdy, weatherproof and the right size. Just make sure to use lead free blinds!

To reuse vinyl window blinds, cut the strings that hold the slats together and cut each slat into any size label you want. Clean them well with vinegar or dish soap to remove dust and grease.

You can write on the slats with a permanent marker.  At the end of the season sand the writing off  and reuse the marker next season.
