Guide To Garden Labelling

Guide To Garden Labelling Banner

For garden labelling, we recommend Brother Garden label printers but you can also use Epson labellers or Dymo label printers. Labelling garden plants is a great way to keep track of plant names and species and keep your garden organised.

How Do You Label Your Garden?

There are two ways to label your garden clearly. Either use a plant stick and stick a label on that, or use a label printer and apply the label directly to the plant container.

Labelling The Plant Pot

When adding a label directly to the plant pot, we recommend using a Brother P-Touch printer with a TZ tape. These labels come in a range of widths and can be printed to a length of your choosing, including as much (or as little) information as required.

Brother TZ tapes are laminated. Which makes them weatherproof, and ideal for use outdoors.

Label A Plant Stick

Most plant sticks are 12-14mm wide, which limits the amount of information that can be stored on them. For this, we recommend a 12mm Brother TZ tape, using a small font to maximise the information added to the label.

What 3 Things Should Be Included On The Label When You Label Your Plants?

You have full control over the information you store when making your garden labels, but there are three common pieces of information shared across most labels.

  • Plant Name
  • Sowing Date
  • Placing Requirements


Garden labelling is the best way to keep your crops, flowers and grows in check and Brother offers a very good method to keep things in check. Whether you’re labelling pots or tags, you can’t go wrong with a Brother P-Touch label printer.
