KG VERDICT

These are of a good size and with 20 in a pack they offer good value for money. They offer plenty of room for writing plant names and will take black or white indelible ink according to your choice of colour. We chose green labels which look particularly attractive with white ink. Best used in pots or trays at least 7.5 (3in) deep or in open ground.

KG VERDICT

Made from oak, these labels promise high durability and can be used again and again. They are more suitable for large pots, raised beds or the open soli rather than for shallow seed trays. The wood has an attractive grain to it and there is plenty of room to write on. Good for permanent positions, such as a potted fruit tree or herb garden. Quality.

These tall, black labels have an angled head and a pointed end for easy insertion into compost or soil. They are 42cm (16½in) tall and are sold in packs of 10. They are also made from made from 90% recycled plastics.

KG VERDICT

Being tall labels these are particularly effective at the end of rows, standing up proud and clear. The heads offer plenty of space for writing and as they are angled reading is made that much easier. As long as the soil is loose, they can be pushed into the ground as deep as you need. Use white ink for maximum clarity.
