I cannot attest to the value of the following, yet, as I won't be 
actually using them until this spring...

I bought a DYMO "Letra Tag" at Wal-Mart for $20-30, and it prints out 
the label (including double row if you like) after typing in the name. 
The thing I am hopeful about concerning permanency is based on the fact 
that you can buy metallic labels for it. These are claimed to be 
weatherproof. The tape is 1/2" wide. I will be sticking them on cap 
style metal garden markers.
