What did you make your plant markers from? Margerine tubs? What type of marker pen did you use?

RE: seedling pics to help you identify your seedlings

Pippi,

My plant markers are made from the covers from coffee cans, margarine tubs, cottage cheese tubs, sour cream tubs. Anything that has a plastic cover.

I cut them in half, and then each half is cut in half again.

I use a black deco paint pen. Those are permanent and never fade. Some of those markers that are in the pics are 6 years old. I save them from year to year and just reuse them if I sow the same seeds again.

Not all paint pens are the same. The ones that can be used on clothing do not work well on plastic and don't last, they either fade or rub off.

A few others I've tried took a long time to dry on the plastic as well.

That's why I stick with and use only Deco paint pens. By the time I'm through writing a label on the plastic, it's dry and ready to use.

Oh, I don't cut of the edge of the covers either. I write the name of the seeds on that edge as well on the side of the tag. That way I can look down and read what is in the container as well as on the side
