Weatherproof Vegetable Garden Markers
If you are looking for durable, long lasting weatherproof vegetable plant markers, I have the solution you are seeking. After using these Reusable Natural Slate Hanging Tags for several years, I can honestly recommend them to my readers.
What Can I Use For Plant Markers
If you are looking for inspiration to use as plant labels in the vegetable garden there are plenty of online ideas to try. From hand painted rocks, to using broken terracotta pots, or even paint stirrer sticks, the options are endless.
For our garden, for the most part, I plant the same vegetables each year. So, I needed an option that was more long lasting and reusable year after year.
Best Vegetable Garden Markers
Heavy Duty Metal Brackets
The reusable slate garden markers come in a set of 10 with heavy duty rustproof metal brackets. The metal doesn’t bend when inserted in the soil and have lasted for a long time outdoors.
Each metal bracket is shaped in a h-shape at the bottom of the bracket. This ensures that the labels stay put, and straight for easy identification for each plant.
Real Slate Slabs
When I first ordered the weatherproof vegetable garden markers made of slate, I was surprised to find that they were thick, strong and easy to write on. Each plant label marker measures a thickness of 4-6 cm, and I have never had one break.

How to Write on a Plant Label
I call this a very semi DIY project. Once the package arrives in the mail, unwrap all the slate labels and metal stakes. Then, using a white sharpie pen, write the name of each plant on the label. Give the ink a few moments to dry, hang the slate label on the metal hook, and place it in the garden.
This is a super simple project that adds a great deal of character and beauty to the garden. These slate garden markers can be used with chalk, however, chalk could wash off in the rain. So, while a sharpie pen is permanent, if you plant the same vegetables each year, they are easily reusable.
I hope that this small projects add a little inspiration and beauty to your garden. Thanks for stopping by Rocky Hedge Farm today.
