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.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
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.
Tie to trunk
For individual trees or shrubs, tie the leading end of the winter wrap to the trunk below the lowest branch.
Wrap in an upwards spiral
Next, proceed to wrap the tree or shrub in an upward spiral direction, allowing an overlap of the burlap.
Wrap with garden twine
Then, using Garden Twine, overwrap the winter wrap to secure it in place for the remainder of the season.
