Recycled ever-expanding plant labels
These nifty plant labels keep on expanding with a growing branch, and are easy to make from old plastic milk bottles.
I used to tie ordinary plants to tree branches with bits of baling twine. But they’re ugly, flap about and don’t expand with the thickening branch.
Members of my family poke fun at me for having a dedicated plant labeller but the labels last indefinitely, unlike permanent (sic) ink or pencil.
I’ve tried this method out on a Victoria Plum, and the label has kept its shape for a good couple of years now 🙂.
