We work with Scotland-based craftspeople whenever possible - and we're delighted to stock these high-quality, sustainable wooden plant labels, made by Al Whitworth of The Wild Croft. They're based in the wee hamlet and fishing port of Skerray, in the Highlands.


Larch is naturally durable outside, and so these markers will last for several seasons if looked after. Without treatment they will eventually fade to a silvery colour (you can oil or paint them if you want to). At the end of each season simply clean, store somewhere dry and use again next year.


Each marker is approximately 15cm long x 2cm wide. They are very sturdy at around 3mm thick, and are a sawn finish, so have the odd mark from this.


You can write on these with anything, but Al recommends using a soft pencil, meaning you can sand them down and write new labels when you want to. (Garden marker pens work well too for a longer lasting label, but it will be more difficult to sand this off for reuse).


These markers are untreated, so when they reach the end of their life they can be left to rot down in the garden (they’ll take a while to degrade though, as larch is naturally resistant to rot, so best not put them in the compost bin!)


Remember, we spend 10% of everything we make on running seed giveaways to good causes in Scotland. Thank you for helping us to help them!
