    What are Bamboo Plant Markers:  

    new_rpoduct_2019_bamboo_plant_markerHow do you mark a vegetable garden?  Bamboo Plant Markers are a set of three labels that will allow you to mark what you have planted where.

    It is easy to mix up seeds once planted and be left guessing as to how to care for your emerging plants.  These Markers take away the worry when using seed trays, planting in rows or even placing specimen plants.  They have a life span of around 3+ years and are biodegradable and fully home compostable after use.

    What's so special about it?

    The material we make the markers from is its real selling point.   Is bamboo a good material?  Yes it is!  It is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world. It can grow up to four feet in one day and to do so it needs no pesticides and little water compared to other crops.  Our markers are made from sustainable bamboo with natural resin made from rice.  This material is free from petroleum-based plastics and BPA and a great way to help reduce plastic in the garden.

    How do i lable my plants?

    If you are already using plastic plant markers then keep using them until they wears out (or get lost!).   However, if you have muddled up your seeds this year and are womdering 'what can i use for plant markers?' then these are the best choice.

    new_prodcut_2019_bamboo_scoopHaxnicks Bamboo Scoop

    A garden scoop is one of the most useful things to have in the garden.  Yet, many gardeners get by without one.  They scoop compost out with a whatever is to hand.  A handy trowel maybe?  It works but as it has no sides it holds very little it makes pot filling much longer than it could be.  The alternative is to pick up the bag of compost and tip it.  Cue compost all over the floor and an aching back at home time!  So, i say even though you can get by without a garden scoop make 2020 the year you treat yourself to a Bamboo Scoop!

    The new Haxnicks Bamboo scoop is made from the same tough material as the Bamboo pots.  If treated nicely (don't leave it down the side of the shed in the rain all winter!) It will last 5 years +.  After use it is fully compostable.  Just break into pieces to speed the process and add to your compost heap.  See exactly how, and learn more about the material in this video. If you have a trusty plastic one then do keep using it until it gives up the ghost. But when it comes to replacing it, the more sustainable Haxnicks Bamboo scoop is the way to go.

    Bamboo Plant Markers

    new_rpoduct_2019_bamboo_plant_markerAnother first from Haxnicks.  The first sustainable Bamboo Plant Markers.  Their purpose needs no explanation but I'd just add they are compostable just like the rest of the Bamboo range and free of BPAs and petroleum based plastics.  And they will help you remember where you planted your carrots. Because, lets face it, although you are 'sure' you will remember - if you are like me, you never will!
