I went searching for nice permanent weather-proof labels on stakes I could use in my garden to identify the various plants and trees.
I looked at a variety of websites, and some were very expensive.
I really liked this image from www.aaaqualityengravers.com it was exactly the type of engraved label with rounded corners I had in my mind which would complement my plants:
I emailed firstname.lastname@example.org and got a quick reply from Bernie Holliday, the owner of AAA Quality Engravers.
I liked that Bernie understood both engraving AND plants (he registered the daylily you see above).
The day I receive my labels and stakes, and showed my wife, she immediately said “Our garden is going to look like a MUSEUM”, I agree with her, these look like museum-quality plant identification.
I want to point out that the stakes are really nice too — they are 5/32 carbon steel power coated black, and tall too (mine are 25 inches).
I took a couple photos of my plant labels and stakes, below. Wish my photos were better, but I took the photos will my cell phone camera.
