Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve put together a list of some of the common questions we get asked about our plant labels and garden accessories.
What can I use to mark my plant labels permanently?
Without a doubt the Brother garden Labeller is the best product -a permanent solution that will outlive most plant labels, and be stylish and easy to read.
Which labels are best for seedlings?
Why we don’t know but, some Birds are attracted to brightly coloured plant labels so swap your white and yellow labels for dark green or black plant labels. These look spectacular when used with a Silver or white paint marker.
What can I use to hold up my tomato plants, peppers, and cucumbers?
Velcro Plant Tie is ideal for all these as well as climbing floral plants like Clematis, Honeysuckle etc. It is simple to use and can be re-used time and time again.
My garden Twine rots and the birds peck at it causing it to break. Can you Help?
Flexi-Tie is a hollow soft, stretchy yet very strong tie. You can use it to secure Bamboo canes for Obelisks or Bean supports. It will secure plants to supports without cutting into stems etc.
The writing on my Plant Label disappears after a few weeks, what can I do?
Many marker pens claiming to be “permanent” will fade, out in the daylight after a few days sometimes. All Labels n Things Marker pens are Waterproof and UV Stable, they will not fade for many months dependent upon conditions they can last over 2 seasons.
Last year my Dahlia Tubers were mixed up and I lost which varieties and colours were which. Any ideas how to solve this?
Loop Lock labels are a flexible label that can be wrapped around the Tuber securely and written on with a marker pen. They come in a range of colours so you can colour code to identify varieties or colours as well. Re-usable the following year.
