Green Thumb Award Winner Biomarkers
It’s that time of year when your mailbox or inbox is filled with garden catalogues. Take advantage of the beautiful pictures and great ideas to help plan additions and changes to this year’s garden.
And as you shop look for the Direct Gardening Association Green Thumb Award Winners. For the last 15 years they’ve recognized outstanding plants and products available through catalogues and websites.
One winner, Cobrahead’s Biomarkers are easy to read, durable and environmentally friendly markers to label flowers and vegetables in your garden. Made in Iowa of recycled plastic and corn cob fiber they come in dark green, brown or light stone, making them easy to blend in with plantings or stand out for greater visibility.
A weather proof label is placed on the marker. Print the plant name with a permanent marker or use a laser printer.
A bit more information: The mission of the Direct Gardening Association, formerly the Mailorder Gardening Association, is to provide the finest gardening products, information, and service through the catalogs and magazines of its members. Their Green Thumb Awards program is designed to recognize new products for their innovation, uniqueness, appeal to gardeners and more.
