labeling plants in restored public garden
My local gardening club has taken on a project to restore the foundation plantings of the house of a former plant and tree collector. We are told he had rare plants from all over the world. We have the means of identifying these plantings but need to find a way to properly label them to be helpful to visitors to this public garden. In the long run there are many acres of gardens and woods that will be next to a state park and will be used by the public and the local high school. I believe the labels should be comprehensive yet located with the plant or tree rather than in a brochure that would have to be printed and supplied. Also we need something that can be prepard by anyone with some craft skills and it should be very low cost as we are all volunteers. Finally, the labels shouldn't interfer with routine maintenance such as mowing. Any ideas are welcome.
