No snails are wanted in this plaque for Mum's Greenhouse. The Plaque is made from natural slate and measures 14cm x 11cm. The writing is engraved using a state of the art laser engraver which fuses the slate giving it a more natural look and guaranteed protection from the elements unlike some printed slates. The slate is pre-drilled and supplied with jute twine for easy hanging. The colour of the writing varies between an off white to a greyish colour and may vary slightly from the pictures shown. A lovely little plaque for a special Mum!
