ANTI-DESICCANTS

Anti-desiccants, such as Wilt-Pruf, are used on broadleaved evergreens to reduce winter drying or desiccation.

Most anti-desiccants contain a waxy formulation which prevents water loss from leaves. Winter thaws may breakdown the compounds, necessitating re- application.

Avoid using anti-desiccants on the under side of leaves. Stomates may be blocked, limiting air exchange and killing leaves.

Read and follow all label directions.
