I have marked my hostas and dwarf conifers with plant labels from everlastlabel.com. I like them and have no problems with the product.
My problem is with using them in the landscape where there are a lot of leaves on the ground in fall. So I removed most of them in my backyard. I could not rake around them, stepped on them, got hooked with my shoes on them, could not mow over them. After I removed them, I mowed the hosta beds with my lawn mower on a high setting to create chopped leaves as mulch. I like that mowing as a low-effort cleanup. As a first step I had pulled the dried hosta leaves off the plants and placed them into garbage.
As backup I have a map of my lot with abbreviations of each hosta. The removed labels I will clean and store, for possible future use.
What was your experience with labels and raking leaves?
