Re: Tags for Nursery Plants (or any plants requiring id for more than 1

Four years ago, I read that used mini blinds made excellent plant markers.
True... When cut to length, written with permanent ink, they can be put into
the pot, tied to the plant and or attached in any other manner... However,
the surface of the material will oxidize and the ink will disappear in about
one year. It will last longer if plunged into the soil above the marking but
will also oxidize off there.  I now have about 800 camellias and azaleas
that are not legible.  If long term id is your requirement, don't use mini
