Protecting Your Evergreens

Did you notice all of the evergreens this past spring that looked brown and dry? There was a great deal of winter burn on evergreens due to our dry winters. Winter burn happens when sun and winds steal the moisture out of the foliage or needles of our evergreens. This time of year we use an anti-desiccant called Wilt-Pruf and spray it on all of our evergreens, including Rhododendron, Boxwood, Holly and other broad or needle-leaf evergreens. The spray works by sealing in moisture to keep the plants green. We recommend a second application in February when the temps will be in the 40’s to protect the plants for the duration of the winter.
