Re: Talkin' Hostas {labels lasting almost'evermore}

HERE'S A GOOD QUOTABLE --<paste below>--
  1. Label, label, label. Don't wait until those plastic tags have faded or 
been scattered by the leaf blower, re-label all your new hostas now. I like 
to bury a plastic label with the hosta name written in pencil at the same 
position for each hosta clump in the bed, say 3 o'clock as you view it from 
the path. They will last for years underground.

the above Solberg Suggestion is called use of "a pencil" written on 
plastic, and to bury the label...
                 Personally tho', I would use aluminium sheeting, cut down 
to whatever size is wanted; and the data, is cut right into the metal 
itself, using an engraver! I prefer to place my labels at 6-oclock, which 
is directly in front of the plant in question.  Now? ..If you can get 
someone's kids, to remove bicycle spokes for you, these never rust, and 
making a nail-hole in the aforementioned engraved aluminium label, allows 
for the label to be attached to same.  Frost heave, will not throw a label 
out of the ground, which is sitting attached to a bicycle spoke and stuck 
into the ground, and the wire will never rust, nor will the 
aluminium.  Will will betcha'all, this kind of label, can be read hereafter 
and evermore; and'me'thinks, T'iz called "lasting forever?" er almost'evermore!

T'is really nice, to dig a seedling many many years after starting it, and 
to be able to read the original aluminium label? ..yup! :)

simply entertain'MINTS! <-> just ignore me?
