Labels or forget

Dove - you can get black labels on the internet. (think I saw them in the Sarah Raven catalogue).  They are more expensive than white, but if you just need a few maybe Santa might be able to help

Labels or forget

Fidget - i have a label maker now, and they don't fade at all.  But when i was writing labels i found that pencil was best, pushed right into the ground so the writing is covered.  You have to slide the label out to see what it says, but it stops it from fading.

I put my purple sensations in about 5-6 inches deep - they come up each year, but get a bit smaller each time, so i plant a few more every year to top up.
