FAQ


QUESTION: How is the cap on the HNP8B removed? ANSWER: Hold the cap with one hand and the pen with the other. Pull and twist the lid clockwise (like you are screwing it on) at the same time. If you twist counter-clockwise, (like you are unscrewing the lid) you might unscrew the tip of the pen from the base.

We have tried many "permanent" markers, but this in the only one that truely stays on plant markers outside.

Nothing better!

2016-06-13

I was first introduced to these pens when I worked for an agricultural research facility. I've been using them in my home garden and landscape ever since. Unlike "permanent markers" these do not fade or wear off over time. They work great on wooden stakes, plastic plant markers, and sometimes I write directly on the leaves of my plants to label varieties (like iris, daylilies, etc). The only drawback is that you have to learn to open them. They can be difficult to open, but the trick is to twist them slightly while pulling off the lid. If you twist one direction, the maker will come apart - that's bad - but twist the other and the lid will come right off.

The pen works as advertised. We've used it on plastic plant tags and metal orchard tags to good effect.

I use the pen to mark plastic plant labels. So far(approx 1 year), the writing has held up without running.

Amazing Pen

2011-10-13

I really like the nursery marking pen. I live in a plains state, so anything left outdoors is subjected to all types of weather. (This past year especially!) It seems to really stand up to all the elements, and sun fade, and is easily read on my plant tags.

2011-10-13

I will buy nothing but AM Leonard Marking pens for our greenhouse business because they are the best on the market. They are truly weather resistant and the price is right.

Pen works fine. Ink supply could be better. Used to label plants.


from IN

Great marking pen!

2011-10-13

I used this for marking names and prices on labels for flowers for sale and the markings did not come off. Also used in the garden. Names stayed on plant tags in all kinds of weather. Especially liked the fine tip on the marker.

Leonard Marking Pen #HNP8B

2011-10-13

The pen I was able to use worked well. I used it on outdoor plant markers. Two of the pens would not open and pulled apart and had to be trashed. One of the canisters was dented pretty bad and the marker dried up after a couple of uses. The covers are extremely difficult to remove and in two cases next to impossible even after tried by several people. I was disappointed and will not reorder. After previous poor results with your customer service dept I didn't even try for a replacement.

GREAT MARKERS!

2011-10-13

We have a retail farm and garden center and these markers are PERFECT for outside use. The marker tip is great for writing and keeps everything looking neat, plus the ink holds up wonderfully outside. Definitely a must item to have!


from CA

It does what it says

2011-10-13

The pen really does mark and stay marked. Most of my garden signs disappear after a few seasons, but this one does not erase; so watch out when you use it; it really is indelible.


from NY

Good pen

2011-10-13

Ink doesn't fade, but pen tip does broaden out over time, makes it harder to write on plant tags as the tip is no longer too fine.

The pen writes well on every surface that I've tried it on and doesn't fade.


from PA

beats a Sharpie !

2011-10-13

An excellent marker for labeling plants. Does not fade like standard markers do. Also dries fast.


from MN

The marker that holds up through the summer.

2011-10-13

I liked the marker because the ink holds up through the rain, summer sun and doesn't wash off.

Loved this pen!

2011-10-13

Loved this pen. Will buy it again. Dried fast, did not smear, did not fade in the sun. It was perfect for our greenhouse needs.


from TX

Works great

2011-10-13

Bought to use in the greenhouse and find myself using it everywhere. Great buy!

A M Leonard Nursery Pen - a great product

2011-10-13

Before I ordered it I was hesitant, since most marking pens write well, but the ink doesn't hold up well here in full sun in Florida. But this one does both. It writes well and the ink is very long-lasting.


from TX

Junk

2011-10-13

Junk. Overpriced. Dried up when received. Not at all worth the investment. Sharpies are more reliable, although they fade. We use an etcher on our tags, then trace over it with a Sharpie. That lasts.

The pen is OK, but I would like a finer point. I'm not sure how long it will last in the weather.


from KY

Markers perform

2011-10-13

These markers definitely perform as promised. They will dry out if stored in a truck or other hot location, and the caps can be hard to get off with wet hands or muddy gloves (as mine usually are).

Leonard Nursery Marking Pen

2011-10-13

I like this marker because it seems to last a long time when used on plastic plant tags and doesn't fade when exposed to sunlight.


from VT

Nice fine line, but...

2011-10-13

Was hoping to find a truly permanent marker that would remain legible from time of planting in greenhouse thru harvest season outdoors. Alas, this marker didn't pass the test. Initial fine line was great even on plastic, but for permanance the ink should be an etching type which I've found in similar marker.

Review of Leonard Nursery Marking Pen

2011-10-13

I have used many other brands but this pen held up the longest for marking rooted cuttings. The point is particularly durable and it even marks when the tag is damp.

Long-Lasting Nursery Marking Pen

2011-09-25

So far this pen is a success. It worked easily on markers balanced on one hand, and so far has stayed on through some serious rains. We'll see about 120 inches of snow melting around it - the real test.


from CT

True to claims

2011-09-25

I purchased this pen to use with metal plant markers, also from Gardeners Edge. It made a clean dark line that is easy to read. It has been out in the rain and looks as good as new.


from NY

Marking pen

2011-09-23

This is my first year to use this pen and it has worked very well for me. Good dark color to mark my markers so they are after a summer still very clear to read, which is what I wanted from this pen.


from NY

the only permanent marker in the garden

2011-09-23

Every other "permanent" marker fades after a season or two; these are readable years later, and the fine point makes them easy to use, too.


from MI

Great Markers

I LOVE these markers...and have used them for years. They perform as promised!

marking pen review

2011-04-09

I would have given 5 stars, but the last two batches have had dead (dried) pens. Otherwise, when they work, they are the only pen we use in the greenhouse. Nothing lasts as long as these pens in sun, rain, heat, on plastic, wood, or paper.

Gardeners Edge replies: Disappointed to hear that, we will QA the batch to ensure good.
