Marker Pens that Work

Can anyone recommend the name of a supplier that sells pens suitable to use on outside seed / plant markers

Thanks

    I currently use a Stabilo write 4 all fine permanent marker.  I used it on a label which I have left in the sun since last May and it still looks okay. It can be removed from a label with white spirit.

    Hi Joyce, they are basically permenant markers that can be used successfully on different surfaces.  You can get them online (Amazon) in supermarkets and stationers.  image

    In a vain attempt to organise myself I bought labels and a marker pen at last year's Hampton Show (its my annual birthday treat from youngest daughter) and the pen they said to get was Artline Garden Marker. The chap said they had tried all sorts and this one was best, don't know yet as domestic issues clobbered gardening last year but will let you know when they have had a full years weathering. So far, very good.

    I also love Sharpies and was so pleased to hear they do fine nib Chicky! Never seen them but I will look for them now as the only thing that stopped me using them on labels is I write big and then run out of space!
