Wilt Pruf-ing

kelly922November 20, 2013

Hi there

Is it okay to start Wilt Pruf-ing our evergreens now? Was going to wait until after T-giving but realized it comes a week later this year. Thinking about hitting my rhodeys and boxwoods....anybody out there have experience or knowledge they can pass along? Thanks!

I don't wilt-pruf anymore because I figure if a shrub can't make it through the winter on it own, it's not suited to this environment. So I can't help you with timing.
However, now you've got me thinking - I fall-planted a boxwood hedge and some Japanese hollies and find that with the lack of rainfall this fall, I have to keep up with the watering. Maybe I should apply wilt-pruf in this instance. Are you dealing with new or well-established shrubs?
