Herb pots

Bring some creativity to your herb garden with edding calligraphy markers.

Nothings beats fresh herbs grown in your very own herb garden: they are decorative, produce wonderful aromas, are rich in vitamins and make your home cooking taste great! These are all reasons enough to get growing – but why not bring a little creativity and order to your herb garden with beautifully decorated pots and plant labels.

What you will need to decorate your own herb garden: 
Step-by-step instructions: Here’s how to label your herb garden with edding paint markers and fibre pens:
  • You can either use the edding calligraphy marker to write large letters, or the edding calligraphy pen with its finer tip to write smaller text on the containers. Give your creativity free reign! For plant pots with rough surfaces such as terracotta, we recommend our edding calligraphy marker. It has an extremely flexible, soft calligraphy tip. It will help you create lettering that makes a real impact.

  • Inscribe the wooden plant labels. T plant labels. They are used to label different herbs in the herb bed. The versatile edding calligraphy marker is ideal for this. Its waterproof ink holds extremely well on rough surfaces and is, of course, weatherproof.

  • Inscribe the metal plant labels with the edding 755 gloss paint markerwith calligraphy nib. You can use these to identify herbs that you have planted in  wooden containers or planters. This edding marker features a robust calligraphy tip which creates a shiny effect with its brilliant ink, particularly on smooth surfaces. 
  • When the labels have dried, screw them onto the woodencontainers or tie them on loosely with ribbon.
  • Tip: If you like our decoration ideas for your herb garden, then you can take the look further with our paint markers and fibre pens: Apply a coat of acrylic paint in a suitable colour to miniature canvases and then, when they are dry, use our markers to decorate them with calligraphy. They look great arranged together with other decorative accessories and would also make an ideal personalised little gift.


Activate the edding 755 calligraphy paint marker:
  1. Shake the pen firmly with the cap closed. 
  2. Pump the pen’s nib carefully up and down on a piece of scrap paper until ink runs into the nib.
  3. Try a few strokes with the marker on the scrap paper.
  4. Don’t forget to always put the cap on again firmly after use.
