Durable Plant Markers

Everyone seems to have a tip for making plant markers. I've posted a couple here, myself. From the standpoint of durability, I think I've found the ideal material. Scrap white vinyl siding.

It is thicker and stiffer than Venetian blinds, making it easier to insert into soil.

It can be cut to wide widths, if needed, for adding lots of information.

If cleaned with an abrasive like Ajax or Comet, the surface becomes more porous and the permanent marker ink will penetrate deeper.

The back side has less grain or pattern, making it the best side for adding your text.

While it takes a little effort to cut the vinyl, I had no trouble cutting it with a dollar pair of Betty Crocker scissors purchased from Dollar Tree.

And as for durability, I think we all can agree, the marker should easily last twenty to thirty years. I'm gonna stay with this one.

The dimensions I used here are 6 inches long, 1½ inches wide.
