IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard for trees and shrubs, (such as Fruit Trees, Ornamental Trees, Roses & Shrubs). Every home gardener and orchard grower should be applying IV Organic 3-in-1 Plant Guard to their tree trunks and branches. This non-toxic, environmentally safe & organic product provides most plants and trees protection from sunburn, insects and rodents.
FIRST: Apply IV Organic Plant Guard to provide a shield against the suns harmful rays that cause sunburn during the hottest summers day– as well as sunscald which is caused when the temperature abruptly rises too high during the cold winter months. Both Sunburn and Sunscald cause the tree’s bark to crack and/ or die– resulting in additional stress which get compounded by insects and parasites that enter the barkless wood– an invasion that will ultimately shorten the tree’s life. The white paint reflects the most amount of light, and provides the greatest protection; however, if requested, IV Organic provides custom natural looking colors as well.
SECOND: Apply IV Organic Plant Guard to provide a shield against beetles, termites and other wood boring insects. This product contains a variety of natural oils, including peppermint oil, clove oil, garlic oil, cinnamon oil, spearmint oil and rosemary oil; all of which are plant-derived proven oils for creating a natural insect repellent when applied to your prized trees. Many of these oils have a duel, insect and anti-fungal, benefit to plants–that when applied suppress parasitic fungi that can otherwise poison and kill plant tissues and steal plant nutrients.
THIRD: Apply IV Organic Plant Guard to provide a shield against rodents; such as rats, moles, voles, gophers and yes… cute bunny’s too; that may gnaw on the tree’s bark. This product contains castor oil, which comes from the Castor Tree Seed, and naturally makes everything coated with this product taste horrible! This product when applied to your prized trees should repel most rodents from taking a bite after its first lick!
