Wooden Plant Labels are the traditional method of labelling sowings, plants, shrubs and vegetables, they have been used for centuries to label plants, long before the advent of plastic plant labels.
This range of plant labels are all made from FSC Oak, so that you know that the source of these labels has been well managed and is sustainable. The labels can be written on and reused over and over again. A small piece of fine sandpaper will effectively remove the previous writing and allow new use.
Once the norm, these beautifully looking Wooden Plant Labels will add a beautiful look and appeal, which plastic plant labels cannot, to any plant or sowing.
