I make these plastic garden row markers out of discarded miniblinds. Easy to write on with a sharpie, a grease pencil or black sharpie is recommended, other colors fade very fast, the black lasts and lasts, especially if the writing is facing away from the sun.

these markers are of various sizes from a small of about 2 inches and up.
Personally, I like them right around 2 1/2 to 3 inchesl long for most of my greenhouse work.
I like the 5 and 6 inch tags out in the garden.

Before I learned this trick, I used popsicle sticks, but they rarely lasted a whole garden season., the wood in the ground rotting away all too quick.
These plastic tags don't do that, tho they do get a bit brittle after some time, the more sun they get, the quicker that happens, but I have several out in the greenhouse that are on their 5th year.
Of course, for more permanent plantings, I use my handmade copper and aluminum tags (some also listed here), they last forever.

I use 1000s of these every year, in the greenhouse, in the garden and every plant I sell has one or sometimes 2.
I just made near 5000 of them for this garden season and thats what prompted me to list these here, in case others want some too.

or just use the idea !
Many folks will scrounge around for some old miniblinds to recycle and make their own, I think thats great, the more recycling we all do, the better the world is.
