This is the time of year to start thinking about planting the annual garden. Adding decorative accents to the garden space enhances the look and feel of your yard and landscaping. In the case of garden markers, not only can they be decorative, but also useful to help you identify your plants and seedlings as they start to grow. These handmade garden markers from various sellers on Etsy are unique items that add a special touch to any garden space. Handmade items are much more unique than items that can be purchased at a local retailer or home improvement store and purchasing from independent crafters helps support small business owners. These handmade garden markers will add their own special charm to your plantings this year.

A Set Of 6 Vegetable Ceramic Garden Markers
This set of six handmade garden markers is made from slabs of stoneware which are stamped, glazed, and fired.

Glazed in various shades of coral, greens, blues, yellow, and purple, these markers add a colorful splash to the garden.

Custom Garden Markers
Made from silver plated copper, these handmade garden markers will add a touch of whimsy to your garden. The artist uses 18 gauge silver plated artistic wire and bends it to create the letters to make the names for the plants and herbs. The stake portion of the markers is around 4 inches tall so that it shows above the plant for easy identification.
