Plant Labels & Markers


Plastic or metal markers are useful to label plants for future reference; make sure that they are weather-resistant and durable enough to last at least a season, preferably longer.

Some of the characteristics of metal and plastic markers include:


  • Cheap
  • May be re-used (if written on in pencil)
  • Excellent for labelling trays of seeds and cuttings
  • May discolour gradually and become brittle

Metal (e.g. Aluminium, Copper or Zinc)

  • Expensive
  • Long-lasting
  • Wording is permanently etched or punched onto the label
