I have a couple of acres of woodland where I want to establish rare native plants from seed. How can I mark the planting sites so I can later locate the seedlings? I thought about burying a metal piece like a nut next to each planting and using a metal detector but don't want to "pollute" the site with buried hardware bits. Circling the hole with white playsand would work but wouldn't last long. I could plant a daffodil next to the rare one but that would multiply and I want natives only. Any creative ideas?
