Name plates/stakes/tags

Post by AutumnDamask on 6th April 2012, 15:45

Just wondering how other members keep track of names of roses in the garden. I'd love to have every rose in the garden have its own tag (permanent type) but am not sure what's available/cheap/easy etc. And I notice that Treloars are now offering the sort of name plates that are used in Botantical Gardens. When you have 100+ roses though it seems a slightly expensive option ( love )

Wendy get aluminium cans and cut them into strips 1"wide , get a paper punch for the hole. When writing the name place the strip on a newspaper so it imprints. I dont know how many thousands I would have cut up, but if I had paid for them, it would have been a few dollars worth.

Wendy don't worry about the colour outside, inside is plain silver colour.

Hi,
over the years, I've noticed that every branch I put a tag on, ends up dying back. I like the idea of a little bamboo stake in the ground with the tag attached to it.

Laurie Newman once made the comment (at a garden talk I attended) that most people leave the nursery tag on their rose and that that limb nearly always dies...

Wendy, Try old fashioned venitian blinds if you can find them. You can scratch them with a pointy thing or if you are keen use one of those engraver things. Cut to size and ty to the plant or do as Karen(rosemeadow) has, dig into ground at rose point. Wipper snippers do not worry them. Tried to post earlier but had to go and have beer with a mate for Easter.

With all my tags, we laminate them to make them stronger and last longer . See photo. All our roses have these name plates as well...

Gave that up a long time ago. I agree about the baranches with tags dying too.
I have a big spiral bound notebook thing where I have drawn maps of the different beds and I record what's planted where .
It's all done in pencil and then if something dies or needs to be moved , I can just rub it out and make a new entry later.

Hi,
I also have laminated maps of the rose beds. I can take them outside and walk around the beds with them checking things out. I can mark them with felt pen and wipe it off later. Very handy.

John, how much are the green place tags worth ?

Rosalie, I tried that method and it worked, so I tried to do the same thing with the computer, not good Headbang

Warren, do you tie to the plant ?

Barbara, with your 'microsoft' method being laminated, notes can be taken as you said, like that idea. Thumbsup
How many roses on your list Barbara ?

As for the tags on plants and branches dieing, seems to be a common thing. With me when I do buy roses with them on I loosen it so as not toi strangle the limb. The branch on some still die, can it be the wire in the ty or the plastic coating scratch

Hi,
I have maybe 230 roses. I tried the plastic covered wire, cable ties and string but they all seem to kill off the branches, no matter if they're loose or tight. I even put a bit of ribbon around a sport on my "Glendore" to take cuttings from later, and lost the whole branch too. I don't do any of them anymore. At the moment I just rely on the maps.

From memory, I think that they are about $1.20 each...

Here you are Nep. I also use plumbers Aluminium flashing which is in the pic.


With the ties killing the branch on the rose, I have never had that happen, maybe the tie is put on to tightly. When I put them on, it is quite loose, just imagine a 4" in diametre loop.

We also keep plans over the garden with all the roses named, but it keeps changing Smile I kinda prefer to have both the plans and a name tag. Sometimes we put the tag on a small bamboo stake next to the rose, rather then on the rose itself.

Anna, having the name tag away from the cultivar on a seperate stake can cause problems if it is taken away by some one quite innocently. The only time I do that is when the seedling are not big enough to support the weight of the tag, it is then attached to a satè stick for a month. I have a couple which the satè stick was dislodged by birds scratching around, now I have no clue what they are.
