Plant markers that last! Finally!
Like many of you, I have sought a plant marker that lasts. I've tried everything everyone has suggested over the years. The wind out here on the plains, the hail, and the harsh UV rays of the magnificent sunshine don't like plant markers. I always map my garden just to ensure I have things identified and located correctly.
Then I came across this wonderful idea. It is aluminum tape for heating ducts. Fold it back over the item you use as a post (plastic cutlery in this case) and write backward. These have stood up to everything with my fall garden. I need to find a better post material, but this tape is awesome for a plant marker.
