Protect Your Christmas Greens with Wilt Stop!
November 28, 2018
Keep Your Christmas Greenery Glowing!
It happens every year…Thanksgiving comes and goes, and immediately after we begin the Christmas boom! 🎄
If you are like many shoppers, you start looking for Christmas greenery as soon as possible to put you further into the holiday spirit. You may pick up some gorgeous wreaths, fresh & festive planters, and of course, the all-important pièce de résistance, your freshly cut Christmas tree.
You want to make sure that your fresh greens last well through the holiday, so that you can enjoy them properly! Ensuring that your greens do not wilt due to weather and other conditions is not too difficult to manage, provided that you have the right product.
We highly recommend choosing Bonide Wilt Stop® RTU to get the job done right.
Wilt Stop is an Anti-transpirant plant protector that you can spray on to your greenery to help them to maintain their fresh, vibrant color all throughout the Christmas season. This product reduces moisture loss in plants by forming a protective coating on their leaves, thus stretching the life of your trees, wreaths, and roping!
Aside from aiding in moisture retention, Wilt Stop will protect outdoor plants from drought, wind burn, sun scalding, winter kill, transplant shock, and salt damage – the whole shabang!
Wilt-Stop for use on Christmas Trees, wreaths, greens, roping, and more is best sprayed on the greens while outdoors.
Here are some additional tips you may want to consider:
- Always make the application to Christmas trees, greens, roping, and wreaths while they are in the sun. The sun helps to set the anti-dessicant barrier that aids in the plant’s protection. Always allow the Wilt-Stop to dry before bringing the greenery inside.
- Applications are best made when temperatures are above freezing and when the product can dry before it goes below freezing.
- It’s important to note that Wilt-Stop will turn “bluish” greens to a green color, so be advised when spraying it on any “bluish” wreaths, greens, or roping. Examples would be Blue Spruce, Noble Fir, Juniper, and various others.
It’s the real deal!
This “literal” life-saver is also great for year-round use on deciduous trees, evergreens, shrubs, and more! It is made with natural ingredients, and the RTU (ready-to-use) formula allows for easy application to your Christmas greens.
