Re: garden tags

Hi everyone,

I've completely lost track of who said the following...

<< > >you can also use some scrap vinyl siding and cut it into strips then cut
 >to length..... > >>

but I'd like to know if this stuff holds up better than the nursery tags that 
often come with plants that get brittle in cold weather and break into pieces 
if they are bumped.   

Alot of my cheap markers are from white Venetian blinds and I'd have to say 
they look like a bunch of little gravestones all over the garden, so if you 
have a choice, get a different color than white.  They have held up good, for 
the past 2 years anyway, but unfortunately I believed "permanent" markers 
were just that, and there are now 1 or 2 that I can't read so I don't know 
which hosta it is for sure...errrrr.   I'll try to hunt down some of those 
nursery markers others have mentioned....or maybe the uni-Paint marker if I 
can't find those.

Thanks for all the good feedback!
