- Plant Labels
The neatest, classiest and most durable labels are Zinc - a discrete matt grey. However these attributes come at a price but spread that price over the life of a tree, shrub, or treasured herbaceous plant and the cost is negligible. They will last more than an eternity and were widely used by our Victorian and Edwardian forebears. We stock the Wartnaby Gardens range of zinc labels. You can mark them with pencil, felt tip, etching fluid or engrave them. You can arrange the engraving or we can arrange this for you.
Thin Copper tags are wonderfully soft and are embossed simply by writing on them with a biro (It is the impression you are after rather than the ink.); other shapes of copper plant label are thicker and suitable for marking in a variety of ways.
Anodised Aluminium labels are softer than Zinc and don't take engraving so well. They have a shiny(ish) finish and a more modern feel to them than Zinc. Aluminium looks good in pots.
Plastic Labels are the work horse of the label family. Cheap and durable plant labels, they are great value and give lasting plant identification. Our wide range of colours, shapes and sizes gives great scope for differentiating between plants. If in doubt, please ring for samples. All our plastic plant labels have a rough to the touch finish to them which makes them easy to write on with pencil or felt tip pen (this is not always the case with many plant labels from other manufacturers).
