Winter is the toughest of all seasons for just about all evergreen plants. Household favorites such as rhododendrons and hollies have thick waxy coverings on their leaves, which work to prevent water loss. Unfortunately, as the winter months come, the ground, as well as the water below, freezes. This makes it impossible for your plants to uptake the water it needs. This gives rise to potential problems. In fact, colder seasons combined with harsh winds or profuse sunlight can/will result in your plants releasing even more water from their leaves. This unavoidably natural and biological response and lack of available water can easily result in winter burn — which can be devastating for your plants.
This is where Organically Green’s anti-desiccant spray comes into play! Our professionals spray your plants, which will help them to retain more water. This will help keep them hydrated, while helping to prevent the dreaded winter burn, even in winter’s harshest conditions.
When it comes to the winter seasons, particularly those of the harsh variety, there are no true reactive strategies, only proactive ones. Don’t wait until it’s too late, have our professionals treat your favorite plants with our state-of-the-art anti-desiccant spray.
