WILT STOP®

Excessive moisture loss from plants causes severe wilting, shock, or plant death. It occurs in winter when drying winds and frozen ground deprive plants of their natural moisture intake. As the planting season comes to an end, there is one more thing that you can do to help give your plants that extra €˜edge’ for surviving the unpredictable Wisconsin winter.

WILT STOP® is a specially formulated concentrate that when sprayed onto the leaves, forms a protective clear flexible film coating which holds moisture within plant foliage without interfering with plant growth, thus reducing water loss during plant stress. The versatility allows use on a vast number of trees, shrubs, perennials, house plants, bulbs, cut Christmas trees and wreaths. To receive the full benefits for winter protection on live outdoor plants, application should be applied in the late fall when temperature is above freezing so that spray will not freeze on foliage. When spraying on arborvitae, cypress, juniper, and cedar, be aware that if species have not sufficiently hardened off for the winter whereby moisture retreats to the root system, moisture in plant cells could freeze and burst if early severe freezing weather should occur. It is especially important to thoroughly spray plants that are in danger of being exposed to salt water from areas where salt is used to melt snow and ice. If using on Christmas trees and wreaths to help prevent drying out, spray thoroughly before bringing inside. Due to the concentration, only one application per season is typically needed and can be found at Heritage Hill Nursery in two sizes.
