That is the idea I was thinking of but was wondering if it would stick to the PVC. I love not have to stoop so low to see the name Hurray!

Excellent seedling beds!

I purchased some from LarryR and he uses PVC with labels too. He puts the label directly on the PVC and it sticks quite well. His PVC is smaller though. I just got some new Kincaid markers. Sturdier than the others I have.

petruske,
Extremely neat looking seedling beds. It looks like a lot of work but I can see how useful having the markers up above the snow and the foliage can be. Nice not having to bend over and hunt the names.

I did put stickers on the PVC pipe at first but found that it's so much easier to pull that plant stake from the pipe, read it and put it back in. Usually it's easier to see even without pulling it because it sits at a slightly tilted angle, where as if on the pipe it's 100% vertical plus rounded and cannot see the entire printing like you can see on a flat tilted label.

Ginny wondering I went on Kincaid and all the heavy duty markers are sold out which did you get?
Wondering if I should get the lighter weight ones or wait until the stronger ones are replenished? Seems a lot of people like the heavier ones so are they better? Last longer? Anyone who has them please chime in.

This is what I have used the last 3 yrs. I like the stainless steel legs they don't corrode like the zinc legs.

Teresa that's what I've been using. The Kincaid are sturdier and shouldn't bend as easy.

I like the heavy duty stakes. I get mine from Paw Paw Labels. I started out getting the regular ones but the heavy snow in our zone bent them over. (Maybe the deer had something to do with it too.)

Stepped on my Kincaids cleaning the snow off the roof, pretty easy to straighten them out

That is what I am doing also, spreading them out over the years. I originally bought the paw paw zinc stakes and name plates, but now I am gradually replacing them with the paw paw stainless steel stakes and the heavier name plates.
