Additional Information

Marking Pen for Plant Markers

  • An ideal pen to use for plant markers
  • Ink is kept fresh by means of a ball valve
  • Ink reservoir holds 8 to 10 times more ink than similar markers

This marking pen is a great companion for any zinc-plated or steel plant marker. The fiber tip is better than the tip found on other markers because it won't flatten with use.

    This marking pen is okay. At times the marker is light and you have to rewrite over. Seems like it drys out or something not sure.

        Comments about : Marking Pen:

        I bought this marker to use with the large zinc plant markers. I landscaped my yard in edible perennial trees and plants.

        The plant and tree markers haven't faded after five years. They remain distinct and readable.

        My only wish is that the plant markers themselves were a little larger in size because some plant/tree names are very long.

          Works great with both the Standard & Large Markers. Very legible and I was able to write two lines (type of plant and name).

                So far the ink has stood up to the torrential rain in Texas. I am assuming that it will stand up to the scorching summer heat in a similar manner.

                  So far the marking pen works really well. The torrential rains, here in Texas, can't wash the ink away. I hope that the pen stands up to our summer sun and am assuming that it will.

                    Good pens to use with plant marking stakes. Very helpful in locating perennials and identifying veggies and herbs.

                      I have used these marking pens now for the past four years. I had one stored for three years, because I forgot where I put it, and it came out at the start of the sumemr in as good a shape as a new one.

                      They are easy to print with because they have a fine tip that stays that way!

                      The labels are permanent and I use them on plastic plant labels during the summer in the garden and in the winter to labell my stored dahlias tubers which number over ninety different plants. They don't fade away leaving you to try to quess which tuber is which. I have used them to mark iris leaves to relocate plants as well. I am using some of the same marked tags for the past three years.

                      They really are permanent instead of those markers that make that claim. They outlast any permanent marker I have ever used - and I have used a lot!
