  • A great recycling idea. Make sure the plank used for the sign is fairly smooth – no risk of splinters. You do not want plants to rub on the plank either. The plants stems and or leaves could rub right through. Some plants will not re-shoot at all.


  • I love this idea! awesome


  • Great for all the green club! love this.


  • What a great idea, why haven’t I thought of this before. No more lost labels or texts rubbing off.
