Whether you’re moving them for aesthetic purposes or so that they can flourish in better sunlight, one of the most daunting tasks when it comes to caring for a garden is transplanting flowers, shrubs and trees. The transplanting process is stressful for you—and for your plant. It’s stressful for you because you’re not sure if the plant will survive. The excessive moisture loss during the transplant makes the whole process really shocking for your plant, and can even kill it if you’re not prepared.
The good news is that there’s a product that can help save your trees, shrubs and flowers during transplanting. It’s called Wilt-Pruf, and it can be a literal lifesaver! Keep reading to learn more about Wilt-Pruf and its benefits from your favorite nursery in Fargo, ND.
What is Wilt-Pruf?
Wilt-Pruf is an organic coating made from pine resin that helps plants hold in moisture, which significantly reduces water loss during transplantation, drought or a deep freeze. The coating is clear, colorless and odorless, so you never lose any of your plant’s great appearance or fragrance after you spray it on. Wilt-Pruf also doesn’t affect plant growth, so it can be applied to a plant at any point during its life cycle.
One of the best parts of Wilt-Pruf is that it’s 100 percent organic, biodegradable, non-hazardous and non-toxic. This means that if your pets or any wild animals passing through your yard decide to nibble on your plants, they won’t be affected.
How is Wilt-Pruf applied?
Spraying Wilt-Pruf is as easy as can be—you don’t need to have a green thumb to use it! All you have to do is mix the concentrate with water, spray it on and let it dry in the sunlight, where UV rays will allow the film to form. The best ratio for ultimate results before transplanting a bulb is one part Wilt-Pruf to 10 parts water. Spray the bulb thoroughly with the mixture, or dip the bulb in a cup with the mixture. Just make sure you allow it to dry before continuing with the transplantation!
Wilt-Pruf can be applied anywhere at any time on any plant, which makes it the perfect choice for protecting your plants year-round. Spray it on your plants before a summer drought, so they can hold in whatever moisture they currently have in their system. Meanwhile, during the winter, applying Wilt-Pruf can help ensure that a deep freeze doesn’t kill your plants. Should you decide to move your plants, applying Wilt-Pruf is a must! This wonder spray will ensure that your plant continues to thrive after the plant is in its new location.
