The only plant marker I use in my garden. The closest thing to permanent I've found!

Love the plant markers. Good quality and tough. The best people to interact with. So enjoy the seasonal and holiday e-mails.
We fell a tree and as it would have it didn't fall quite were it was planned. Fell in the middle of a Daylily bed of about 30 plants. Only one marker didn't make it after also being walked on. Have ordered close too 500 and recommend them to other Daylily friends.
I first ordered Kincaid Garden Markers because they came highly recommended by the horticulturalist at the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum for a project that we were doing on a public green scape in our community. In fact, the NSA recommends these plant markers for all of their projects for marking perennials and smaller plant material. I found them to be heavy, well made and long lasting. I have since ordered some more for my own personal use in my landscaping. They are the best out there and I highly recommend them!
These heavy duty, beautiful, resilient markers are truly the best I have ever used. Our garden now sports over 6000 of these in different heights, and I cannot conceive of ever using a different kind. They are hands-down the greatest marker. My response is uber-positive. Thank you, Kincaid, for making a better marker. Even in our harsh Canadian winters, with heavy snows, we very rarely need to straighten a marker in spring.
Kincaid's Stainless Steel garden labels are the "gold standard" of garden labels. I've puchased around 1,000 over the last 10 years and never been disappointed. The owner provides personalized service on special orders, so call if you need something that isn't specifically described in their item list. Shipment has always been prompt, with boxes arriving in perfect condition every time. If you're interested in buying the last labels you'll ever need, these are the ones!
These markers are by far the best that I have used! I have re-ordered several times, because these stainless steel plant markers have not shown ANY wear! I have been using a chisel -tip sharpie to create calligraphy on the markers, including common name and scientific names. The plant markers can be erased with acetone, or, less effectively, paint thinner.
The only inconvenience, the sharpie making fade after about a year. You can purchase plant label makers, but I haven't tried them. Great product...worth the price!!

I've ordered four batches (25 markers per batch) over the past two years. Absolutely, beyond a doubt the best, most beautiful plant markers on the planet! I always order labels too - I email them a spreadsheet with what text I want on each marker and they print them for me. I like the black labels with white lettering - looks very professional and elegant. The orders always arrive promptly (within a week, usually less), and the owners of the company are very friendly and responsive, answering questions, and such. The markers I've had for 2 years still look brand new, and appear to be indestructible. I highly recommend!!
I've been using Kincaid Stainless Steel markers for years! They are by FAR the BEST plant markers out there. I've tried plenty of others. They get bent, dog stomped, raked out. Not the Kincaid markers. And they last forever! I use a Dymo labeler to mark my plants. More than once the marker has out lived the plants! I recommend them to all my gardening friends. And of course my hosta loving best friend will get her usual bunch of markers for Christmas!

Kincaid Plant Markers are truly what they say they are - high quality and long-lasting. They're easy to use and you can use a paint pen or a sheet of Avery labels if you don't have a Brother P Touch printer. They last through all kinds of weather, pets, kids, you name it - I wouldn't use anything else. You can set them out once and be done with it.

I have examined every brand of blank garden markers on the market that I am aware of, and I believe the Kincaid "M" and "P" style makers are the most durable and most aesthetically attractive labels available unless you spend mega-bucks and go with the professionally preprinted markers found in some of the leading public gardens. For the homeowner, hobbyist, and even public gardens on a budget, these are an awesome product! I use the "M" style marker and Brother TZeS (the S-type has extra strength adhesive for long-term outdoor use) label tape. The labels will last many, many, many years in full-sun conditions, and the actual markers should last a lifetime.
