I make plant markers by cutting strips of vinyl blinds into 5-inch sections. I write the name and flower color on it using a fine-tip Sharpie permanent black marker. Then I insert the printed end into the soil next to the plant. When you pull it out, the printing will remain visible indefinitely and you'll always have the name handy. It does not fade, as does the name exposed to the elements. I find a lot of my "recycled" blinds at the curb on garbage-pickup day.
