After considering my garden marker options in a recent post
, we cut some ceramic tiles for use in the garden beds. As far as I can tell so far, ceramic tiles are an ideal medium with which to signpost your plantings.
You need the largest size rectangular tile you can get ...and a tile cutter long enough to accommodate the tile's length. Some skill is required to use the tool but if you can handle the slice-ing motion there's little waste.
Anyone interested in obtaining these markers without cutting their own should be able to get them from the new shop at Artrageous Community Arts in Deagon
. We hope to make up bundles for sale as a fundraiser.
Some may be decorated with mosaic for that extra zing in the garden beds.
All things considered these markers should last a very long time sitting in the dirt despite all weathers. If you accidentally bury them they are soon enough resurrected.
