During the Victorian-era, gardening became much more of an art form, and gave rise to much of the garden ornamentation we see today. We asked our Beekman 1802 Rural Artist Collective member Barbara Sullivan to come up with a whimsical way to mark your herb garden, vegetable beds, or flower pots.
Each of these leaping lords and non-waiting ladies is individually sculpted by hand and kiln-fired to make sure that they last through several generations of gardeners in your family. The set of 4 includes a 12-inch stainless steel post for planting them in the dirt. After gardening season, the post can easily be removed and the markers used as place-settings on your dining table.
We recommend using a grease pencil for writing on the markers which will not rub off with rain or watering but is easily removed with a gentle scrub.
