Advice on what to buy? I have black plastic plant label stakes and want to print labels white on black for the garden plants. I see Brother do one GL-H105 but cant see that they do white on black labels. Ive tried permanent markers but they don't last. What do others use?

Hi Bren, one reply on social media "I know they can be useful but I'd avoid sticking labels in your garden if possible. Planting plans and notebooks and of course @ShootGardening".

Okay, thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't realised that labels were not okay. Is it because of the plastic?

Hi Bren, reply back from Dave who is a garden designer by the way is ... "Plant labels, OK in Botanic Gardens and veg plots but most of us Designers are trying to create something as naturalist as possible, labels just look out of place. You certainly wouldn't get a Gold medal at an RHS show if you left a label in! If you must of course avoid plastic." Does that help?
