Label Tape on MaxiAids (0.5 inch)

There are 2 sizes of tape, either should work with the garden marker above. There are also many other color options.

Braille Label Maker on MaxiAids

Note I had to keyword search this product. You can also use some slates and the Perkins Brailler with an attachment.

Way Around Tags on WayAround 

These are a higher tech option. The tags have a NFC chip in them that when read with a NFC reader will open the Way Around App and read the information you have programed on the tag either by the screen reader on your phone, or by reading the text you have entered. MOe likes this option because it allows you to keep track of more than just the plant type.
