An addendum to Nan’s informative post for January’s GGW Design Workshop on Labeling and Record Keeping. When I was at the Tel Aviv University Botanical Gardens earlier this week, I noticed a few ways of labeling plants that I had never seen before.
The first one, in the herb garden, was braille plant labels. I had heard about them in my readings over the years but had never seen one. I was grabbed by their beauty and thought that they added a certain emotional and esthetic quality to the garden.
The second one was plant labels for wall gardens. Would guess that several botanical gardens have them but I still think it’s a nifty idea. Unlike plant labels interspersed with plants on the ground, if positioned correctly, these labels are unlikely to interfere with the plants! How cool is that?
