Aluminum plant tags that don’t fade really are permanent. Most of us who garden and tag our plants for future reference learn pretty quickly that permanent markers are not as permanent as you think when out in the sun and other elements. I’ve tried permanent markers, industrial markers, paint markers and even “plant” markers. They all fade eventually. The paint markers hold up the longest, but because they are paint and not ink, they are more difficult to write with.
So what’s the answer?
Aluminum plant tags. When you write on an aluminum plant tag the the letters are actually embossed into the aluminum so fading is not an issue. I first mentioned these in my newsletter, http://freeplants.com, several weeks ago and people keep writing to ask me about them, where to get them etc. so here’s a website that actually has a pretty good demonstration of how they work. http://www.amekron.com/
Hey Mike! What did you do today?
Today I stuck about 350 Java Red Weigela Cuttings today. Actually I spent most of the day getting ready and stuck those 350 cuttings in about an hour. More cuttings tomorrow! Tis the season for making baby plants.
