Keep trees healthy this winter

10th December 2016

The time is ripe for garden enthusiasts to protect trees and bushes from insects and aphids looking for prime spots to lay their eggs this winter.

To help prepare for the harsh months ahead,  Vitax has developed three products to keep insects at bay.

Winter Tree Wash, Fruit Tree Grease and Tree Bands have each been created to ensure trees remain in tip-top condition during the colder months.

Organic gardeners can protect trees and bushes with Winter Tree Wash - a completely natural organic product - which gives plants a good clean ready for the new season.

With a blend of surfactants and natural oils, it removes insect debris, dust and wax which insects use to secure their eggs.  Suitable for use on evergreen plants, it removes contaminants from the leaf surface to increase light exposure and encourage photosynthesis.

In addition to Winter Tree Wash, Vitax has formulated Fruit Tree Grease tospecifically deter winter moths and other fruit tree loving insects.

Fruit Tree Grease is an easy-to-use brush-on, monitoring trap.  Preventing wingless female moths from climbing fruit trees and laying eggs in tree bark crevices, it can be applied now and re-applied late winter to ensure fruit trees enter spring healthy and free of eggs.

As a pesticide free option, gardeners can use Tree Bands.  Once again suitable for organic gardening, each band is treated with a non-drying adhesive which stops insects in their tracks. 

Forming an impenetrable barrier, it is a non-hazardous solution for wingless moths and other insects such as ants and caterpillars.

All three products are available from good garden centres and hardware stores.
