Chalkboard Pots Organize plants and seedlings, and identify homegrown kitchen herbs, by painting the collars of clay pots with stripes of chalkboard paint (available at crafts stores). After the paint dries, write the name of each plant using chalk. You can make note of feeding and watering needs, too. The chalkboard stripe will wipe clean with a damp cloth.
gardening, TOP TIP: Flower Pot Drain Hole Cover: Just lay a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot covering the hole before filling the pot. The soil will stay in the pot and the water will still drain out because that is what coffee filters are designed to do; let water through. They last for a long time, too; by the time they fall apart, the potting soil is well packed and the plant has roots that hold the soil together.
