Hi Shari
I am shopping for a plant marker system. I put that same question out awhile back.
Something I am seriously considering is "Impress-o-Tag" made by Amekron Company and sold on Amazon. They are soft metal, so you can take a pointed object like a ball point pen and scribe your plant name. Long lasting in the outdoor garden.

I recommend and have ordered from Paw Paw Everlast Label Company twice now and was very happy with my order and quick shipping. I did not order the stainless steel however. I have ordered both their "E" (11" tall) and "F" (21" tall) style plant markers in the galvanized marker and have gotten the heavy duty zinc plates.

I just checked their website and 30 of the"F" style markers in stainless steel with heavy duty zinc plates is $51.75 with free shipping in the US. Galvanized markers are $36.75, but the next time I order, I will be getting stainless steel.

Edited to add: I also have a hand-held Brother P-touch label maker and buy the 3/4" or 1" white label tape to label these markers from Paw Paw. My original labels from 4-5 years ago are still holding strong and are just as legible on my galvanized markers as the day they were put on.

The galvanized markers have eroded at the dirt line enough that I am now breaking off the bottom of the marker and sticking it back in the dirt. Shorter... but they still work!

I have narrowed down what I can take care of...in the flower bed
so I ordered the 20 inch stainless steel markers from Kincaid.
I just stood back when I opened the box and saw them
They are tall, beautifully made, super super strong and thick.
I wish I had been able to have these when I began having daylillys and
other perennials 15 years ago..

They sent then very fast to me in 2 days through the post office
and so glad that they did not get damaged through the postal system.

I spoke to the family member on the phone and he was super nice to me
I ordered off amazon but it was the Kincaid brand.

If I could give the Kincaid stainless steel markers a 20 I would
but surely give them a 10 on a 10.
These ought to last the rest of my life...thank goodness
as many of us are on a budget...in life.

I know it will not use the l inch..and that is what I want to use for my new beautiful stainless steel 20 inch markers!!!!!!!!!So excited over the markers cause I have looked at rusted markers for years.

Good news - Sheri !
We all love to be organized.
I did receive the 100 Impress-o-tags earlier in the week and got busy embossing and potting and tagging. I like them a lot.
To walk through our blooming garden with friends and identify every plant at a glance is so nice. It is also a way for me to identify what failed to come back after a long hard winter in the perennial beds.

I initially intend to label my dahlia tubers as I temporarily pot them up for a head start on our short season. They will be planted in late May in the annual garden using a trellis like the one below. The metal tags will be tied above each plant, on the trellis, at eye level. At harvest the tags will follow the tubers into storage.

Sheri, I use the 1/2" on the Kincaid markers, clear with black print UV resistant. Works great.
