Plastic Knife to Label Plants

I have moved multiple times and added and split perennials to each flower garden. Sadly, after tending to a variety of gardens, I have had trouble keeping track of what's been planted and where.

My solution? When plants are at their peak, I write with a Sharpie on white plastic knives, the name of the plant and when it blooms. I stick the labeled knife in the center of the plant so I can easily locate my investment each spring and summer. I have used this trick for over 18 years and haven't lost a plant yet!

Great idea. I also have moved and transplanted and lost things. Every fall I swear that I'll write out a diagram on paper showing where everything is, have started it, but don't know that everything is on there. Oh well!

I cut plastic ice cream containers into strips and cut the ends to a point for easy insertion into the ground.

I have used your method but the ink from the marker does not stay on the knife! What is the trick to getting it to do that?
