Hi All, well, with many potted bulbs (Hippeastrum) going dormant...and many more becoming available to buy from commercial nurseries, it's always a challenge to have a cheap, easy, convenient and LASTING method of labelling potted bulbs to keep track of which bulb is which. Especially since more often than not the bulbs don't come with permanent labelling stakes. I think most of us at one time or another have deluded outselves that 'Oh, I'll remember what bulb that is...in half a year from now.' Or, in the case of home-crosses, there's doezens of baby bulbs to either keep batched together...or label. So I wanted to share with the group a method I've been using, which is to use a water-based porcelain glaze on commercially manufactured glazed (4" or 6" bathroom) tiles. There are 2 French companies...Pebeo and Lefranc&Bourgeois...that manufacture the glaze, which comes in many colors, and is commonly available at crafts stores. It costs around $3.00 bucks a 1.5 oz. bottle, and you paint it on and "fire" it in your oven for 30 minutes. I use my toaster-over. White glazed bathroom tiles are available to buy individually at places like Home Depot...or scrap overages are easy enough to find...and they can easily be cut using a hand tile. Home Depot sells a 12" hand tile cutter by HomePro for about $15.00 bucks that's easy to use...just score & snap. I usually cut tile pieces that are 3/4" in. by 3" in., so a 6" in. tile yields 16 pieces. I've got 16 H.'Susan' x 'Picotee' babies starting to go dormant from a cross I made 2 years ago...so I just labelled the whole batch with one 6" tile. And another thing about tile pieces is that they don't (easily) wash or blow away. Anyway, that was my home crafts project du jour that I thought I'd share. -d.
