Clever Gardening Technique

Masking Tape Labels
For handy labels, use masking tape. Stick a strip of the tape onto a container of a concentrated solution of fertilizer or other liquid. Write abbreviated instructions on the tape with indelible ink. Rather than having to locate and reread the full-length directions each time, just refer to your simplified version on the tape.
