I find golf tees to be useful in the garden. In the spring, I put tees in the gaps between bulbs so that I can fill in the gaps in the fall. When I plant a new perennial, I mark it with a tee so that I know where it will emerge in the spring. In the vegetable garden, I mark the ends of rows until my seedlings appear so I don’t overplant. Golf tees are inconspicuous to a casual garden admirer but easy to see if you’re looking for them. They stay in place for several seasons if need be, and they’re easily color coded.
