Boxwoods and other fragile plants are vulnerable to dry air and chilly winds, so it's important to protect them for winter. Martha shares two ways to protect plants from winter weather.
Teepees made from burlap and bamboo offer the best defense for your boxwoods. See the how-to below.
Anti-transpirant sprays like Wilt-Pruf protect plants from drying out when evergreen roots freeze during winter. These solutions form a waxy coating around the plants. They're also useful in preventing Christmas trees and wreaths from dropping their needles.
These two techniques can be used alone or together for enhanced protection.
