I have been trying to use my failing french skills by perusing foreign language blogs….It is a struggle ( I think I need to pull out the Rosetta Stone) but pictures speak volumes and I think I have figured out the recipe for making these ‘tres chic’ garden tags.
Caro and Alain suggest this project be made in the garden at a table under the shade of a tree (so french romantic!).
What you need:
raffia or string
small pieces of wood (I think that a pack of shims might be an excellent choice)
a felt pen or a Sharpie
pieces of bamboo (about 18 inches tall) (cut it from you garden or buy at craft store)
Cut out as many pieces as wish from the wood for labels ( each measuring about 1″ x 4″). Make a small notch in the end of the bamboo to fit the width of the label against the surface of the bamboo. Cut string approximately 20 inches long. The notch in the bamboo stabilizes the two parts together. Use the string to tie the parts together and then write your label.

I want to send out a big congratulations to Chris Heiler over at Landscape Leadership for recently completing his book for landscape pros. He set an aggressive goal to get this written and ready for all of us – completing it in just a few short months – and he achieved it. If you don’t…
