    For those master gardeners out there - has anyone used a product called wilt proof? Or is there another product you would recommend to prevent wind-burn?

    Last year many of my skip laurels took a serious beating w/ the wind, so I am hoping to apply preventative products before any damage. Thanks!

    Burlap actually works real well. I used to live on an extremely windy property and this made a tremendous difference w/ my japanese maples. Plus it is available at most farm stores (Tractor Supply)

    Burlap is a good suggestion, but it requires removing it daily.
    Wilt Proof is a good product, and works wonders on nearly all broadleaf evergreens. It protects leaves from damaging winter winds. Needled evergreens can not be sprayed with Wilt Proof, so please read the label and follow the directions.
