Permanent Garden Tags

Permanent Garden Tags

These low cost aluminum tags are the best product we have found to keep important information recorded for plants in the garden. They will not rust and weather much slower than plastic tags. They come in two sizes: 1.0" x 3.375" (small) and 1.625" x 3.75" (large). They are made in the U.S.A, come with a wire fastener, and can be embossed with a pen on one or both sides. Shipping fee is included (within the contiguous US).

For a FREE SAMPLE, please designate "small" or "large" and send send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to us.

3 Questions asked on Permanent Garden Tags

Q SmootZero • 05/11/2018 How do you write on them? Do you need a special tool?
A Prairie Moon • 05/11/2018 No special tool needed. We use just a ballpoint pen. Press the pen into the aluminum and your words are permanently embossed on the tag.
Q Will • 08/08/2018 Where could I get something like the stakes that are pictured?
A Prairie Moon • 08/08/2018 The yellow metal pole pictured in photo #5 above, our Outdoor Operations Mgr just got at a Farm Supply store locally and he drilled the holes himself to secure the wire for the tag.
Q Mary • 05/22/2019 Other than buying a dowel and drilling a hole, how would you suggest using these. I am disappointed in their application! Thanks.
A Prairie Moon • 05/24/2019 Hi Mary! We have used the tags in a variety of ways here – I’ve loaded more photos to this product page.

1. We have found metal garden stakes/poles that have a loop or hole at the end (like you see in the Penstemon and Cinna photo).

2. We have also had success just wrapping the wire around a PVC pipe in a garden bed and they have remained for years.

3. We have stapled them into fabric to mark our fields because poles get in the way of the mower.

That said, if you would like to return your unused tags, we can apply a full refund when they arrive back to us.
