We aren’t the only ones who require winter jackets. When fall and winter are upon us, it’s important to protect our shrubs for the cold Canadian temperatures ahead.
Make sure your shrub is watered thoroughly before the cold weather sets in. It will freeze over winter and unthaw in Spring providing instant water for the roots.
For individual trees or shrubs, tie the leading end of the winter wrap to the trunk below the lowest branch.
Next, proceed to wrap the tree or shrub in an upward spiral direction, allowing an overlap of the burlap.
Then, using Garden Twine, overwrap the winter wrap to secure it in place for the remainder of the season.
