Long-lasting plant tags

By: Garden Gate staff

Tired of plant tags that fade in the sun? Here's a simple way Cynthia Libby keeps the print readable in her Maine garden: For each plant marker placed in the garden, put another directly in front of it to protect it from the sun's rays. If the tag in front fades, the one behind is still able to be read.
