Make Tree and Plant Labels Last Longer

I explained in an earlier post about how to make homemade plant labels. Now I'm going to tell you how to make your plant labels last longer no matter what type of label you use. Go outside and locate the plants you wish to label. If you know where the sun comes up, you'll know that is the eastern horizon. Stand up straight now, and put your arms straight out like you're going to fly like a bird. Point your right index finger to the eastern horizon and your left index finger towards the western horizon (where the sun sets). You are now a human compass :) Now face your tree and plant labels in the same direction you are facing...next to the tree or plant you are labeling of course. The sun will hit the front of the labels the least on this side and will keep the face of your labels safer from the oxidation effects that the sun causes. See, now wasn't that simple enough? :)

I SO need to label where my flowers are and what they are...I've tried several things and gave up...now I just hope I do not think something is a weed and kill it.

That is a great tip. I never would have thought of it but it makes sense.
