Friday Favorite: Plant Tags

July 11th, 2014

This past week I visited a local public garden, it’s a small facility, so I was surprised when most of the plants were labeled.  I love a place that has plant tags because I always want to know varieties.  In my photos you will find both photos of the plant and the tags.

I would love to add tags to my garden but I’m not sure exactly which method I would use. For right now I keep track with photos, but it would definitely be nice to have things labeled since I get a decent number of visitors. Tagging plants is both an investment in time and money though and I’m not sure if I want to dedicate any of my gardening time to that right now. Perhaps that’s a good future project, something to tackle during one of our long Maine winters.

Do you have any plants tagged in your garden?
