TWO IS ONE, ONE IS NONE! Murphy's law always finds a way of striking fig hobbyists. Turn your back for one second, and an unlabeled fig tree or cutting suddenly becomes an unknown. It happens to the best of us. But it's easy to redeem yourself with the mantra, 'Two is one, one is none.' Do you have an expanding fig orchard? Have you bought more than ten cuttings this season? Has your spouse threatened to... if you can answer yes to any of these questions then you need to live by 'Two is one, one is none'. More on this later. Labeling your fig trees is the easiest thing you can do to protect your collection and these are the labels to do it. No label is forever, but vinyl wrap-around tree tags come close to it. They are tough and remain flexible and durable in the worst and coldest weather, season after season. I know this is true because I use them and have the same yellow vinyl wrap-around tree tags that are more than 12 years old! Each label has a large, smooth surface to write on. Black Sharpie markers really make the label pop. Easy and secure keyhole fastening system.
Are all wrap-around tree tags created equal? You'd think that finding vinyl tree tags is easy. But it's not. There are suppliers selling cheap plastic tree tags as vinyl. Cheap plastic tree-tags are... cheap. There's no other way to put it. They may last a season or two and that's all. Accidentally knock into a brittle plastic tag and it'll crack right off. And don't count on them lasting through a wind-driven storm. They'll break off and be swept away into the next county. Some plastic tags fail simply by pulling the tail through the lock. I've taken the guesswork out of it for you. These wrap-around tree tags are soft, pliable and manufactured with a heavier gauge vinyl that stretches and twists with the wind instead of cracking like plastic. They'll take a beating in a tough environment and keep on hanging like a champ.
What other methods can I use to tag my fig trees? That's a great question. I've used many different methods of tagging our fig trees. Sheet aluminum, Impress-o-tags, copper discs, mini-blinds, plastic and wood stakes, dog tags, homemade, etc. Most have some value but some have no value. The value in any fig tree tagging system is in the time vs cost vs durability. Instead of going through each one, I'll tell you what I've found to be bullet-proof and works best. Ideally, you should have multiple identification markers on each fig tree. Two is one, one is none. Label the tree, soil, and the pot.
What else can I use Yellow Vinyl Wrap-Around Tree Tags for? You are not limited to fig trees. You may use vinyl wrap-around tree tags for any plants, shrubs, or trees as you see fit. You can use them in the vegetable garden too.
