Product Bite: sustainable Bamboo Plant Markers•
Posted on 18 August 2020
What are Bamboo Plant Markers:
How 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 label 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 wondering 'what can i use for plant markers?' then these are the best choice.
