For years I've employed various means to mark the place where I've planted seed or seedlings.Collected sticks for the purpose. Even flagged stakes with rags.
Now I think I'm on a winner.
I just spray one end of bamboo stakes with spray paint fluro --and they stand out no matter what the mulch or plant background.
The stakes -- when planted in block -- also restrict the movement of ferals on the beds -- like the fam dog or invading Sacred Ibis.
You need a lot of stakes. These are 60cm long for around 15c each.
Once the plant is consolidated you can consider retrieving the stake -- but note that where a plant enters the soil may be some distance from where it develops above ground.
Staking like this makes for a handy inventory.
Main point: when hoeing, digging or [spit!] weeding you know where not to intervene.
WARNING! WARNING! Edible plant! DO NOT DESTROY!
In a polygamous garden like mine, you gotta look out for the little guy.
