Through detailed step-by-step instructions, learn how to whittle your own sustainable plant labels with seasoned woodcarver and author, Peter Benson.
The reusable plant labels can be made in the style of your choice, and can be used for sowing seeds or potting plants.
Peter says, "Often when I am in the greenhouse or garden, I sow seeds or pot up plants and then search for suitable labels. Usually, I find only broken ones or ones that have been used before. Consequently, I started to carve labels from wooden sticks."
This course is suitable for anyone experienced in woodcrafting.
