RE: Alberta Spruce & Ilex Meserveae "San Gabriel"

I used to wrap a "Hollywood juniper" but it has gotten to the point that it
does very well on its own.  Like you say, it's hard to get the timing of
wilt proof down right with the way the weather has been going as of late.
If a plant gets over 3' tall, it's a real hassle for me to get burlap around
it, being height challenged myself.  Fortunately, the front (south) side of
the house doesn't get that much wind.  (Snow is another matter.) The back
fence does block a good deal of the wind that passes through the yard, so
burn shouldn't be much of a problem there.  

Thanks, Ceres!

Bonnie, mine are not in protected locations but I do watch them closely as
are in a wind tunnel.   The snow reflection creates a burn problem for them
also.   If they start to show signs of burn I wrap in burlap.   I have none
my AS wrapped yet this year but I do have a yellow   Chamaecyparis, a couple
of J. maples and a dogwood wrapped.   In the past I have sprayed with Wilt
Pruff but it is so difficult to apply this at the right time any more with
warmer & fluctuating temps.
