Tired of your garden markers breaking, rotting, or being eaten by animals? Amy Lea 'n Me has your solution!

Tell us about your business.

Forget~Me~Not Garden Markers! Amy Lea 'n Me is a family business that was started by my mother in 1978. She made baby bedding and traveled the country doing craft shows. After 17 or so years on the road she gave it up to be home. In 2012, Amy Lea 'n Me was reborn, now with me at the helm. I make garden markers for your pots or garden to identify what you are growing. Each marker is handmade and weather sealed so they hold up really well in all kinds of weather. Over time they will age a bit and have more of an antiqued look. Currently I stock vegetables and herbs but can do anything you are looking for. I do flower names as a custom order. There are way too many to stock! It takes about a week to do a custom order so if you are looking for something that is not listed please let me know. I am happy to do whatever you are looking for.

What makes your business stand out?

Each garden marker is hand-formed and fired, painted, and weather sealed. They are attached to forks so they stay in the ground better. They are bright and colorful and will brighten up your garden and last.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Keep learning and always try to make your product better.
