Garden ID Labels

For a long time, plant markers have mainly served one function, identifying plants. Sure, no one wants to mistake a Queen Anne's Lace for a Cow Parsnip, but your plant markers can be so much more! Here are some ways you can make the most out of your garden with labels.

Use Plant Labels as Reminders

How much water does an Angel’s Trumpet need? Do Hybrid Tea Roses need that much sunlight? It can be easy to forget the answers to some of these questions when your yard is beginning to look like a botanical garden. Luckily, plant markers provide a visually appealing way for you and your guests to enjoy some key facts about your garden!

Remind yourself how to properly care for every one of your plants. Watering and sunlight instructions are popular choices, but a picture of the plant and its average adult size can help you see if your plant is growing strong.

From color coding them to designate how much water they need to printing instructions on them or including pictures as a reference guide for appropriate growth, the possibilities of how labels can help you save time and grow a healthy garden are endless!

Turn Your Garden into a Conversation Piece

Plant markers can really make your garden an attraction for friends. Include interesting information that guests will love to read. Did you know that squeezing the ends of a snapdragon will cause it to look like a dragon's mouth opening and closing? Neither did we!

The stories behind naming and country of origin are easy to find and fun to read. We're not saying you should charge admission, but an extraordinary garden can easily become a fantastic conversation piece.
