As I mentioned before, I use only the cut up venetian blinds ( which I find some people throw away ), and a good pencil. I tried the sharpies, but they seem to fade over time.
Like Gone_Tropical, I do like the idea of placing the markers in the soil in a set spot. I usually put it at the 12:00 o’clock position when looking at the plant from the front of the garden. They seem to last best if almost completely buried in the soil, with just a tip showing so I can pull it up easily, if I need to make a reference, without getting too dirty. :)
These are some of my ornamental kale seedlings which I have planted.
