Apply Dormant Oil Spray Every Spring Prior To Buds Popping!

This preventative measure eliminates most problems. Common fungi and insects that affect fruit trees and roses are the over-wintering kind. They hibernate on your plants and can cause great damage to new buds in early spring. Dormant Oil protects their buds, foliage, pollination, bloom and fruit.

Nip these potential problems in the bud and apply Dormant Oil Spray in early Spring!

Apply Dormant Oil Spray on a day when it is above 5°C and little wind. This will allow the spray to adhere to the branches and dry completely. Also be sure it will not rain for 24 hours or your work may be washed away.
Once the weather warms up and your tree leafs out, it is too late to apply Dormant Oil Spray.

Glen Echo has Dormant Oil in stock now. Buy early so you have it when you need it as Dormant Oil kits can sell out in the spring.
