    Hey

    Where do you find the plastic plant tags to write on? I've tried using popcicle sticks, but they deteriorate too quickly.

    Go to any Lowes or Home Depot to the plant section. They should have them. It's where I got mine.

    Any plant store will aslo have them. The regular plastic ones are pretty cheap. You can also buy them here (**********.com) in the Misc. section. 12 for a dollar [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I was hoping to buy in bulk at a lower price...our nurseries don't sell them and Lowe's only has HUGE placard-style tags.

    Be sure you use a soft graphite pencil to do the marking. Even laundry shapries quickly fade over a season or two. The only secure labeling tools are graphite or true india ink.

    Tamlin,

    I have found that the Sharpie Industrial Markers do not fade(since spring).
    The regular ones faded for me in a matter of weeks.
    Make sure it has "Industrial" on the label.
    Office Depot stocks them.

    A more detailed explantation is here:

    This link also illustrates how to recover the faded script.
