The spring whitewashing of fruit trees
The beginning of April – is not only excellent, sunny mood, but it is also the beginning of the spring whitewashing of fruit trees in the garden at the cottage. Always, the whitewashing of the tree begins with the preparation of the correct composition for the start of work. We must always use the only hydrated calx. Looking at the front, I would say that the most effective protection of the tree trunks will be only after the second whitewash. Of course, the whitewash for the trees is in any specialty shop, it will be not difficult to buy it.But why to pay for something that you can prepare the calx for whitewashing of trees at home. At first we must prepare the bucket,to pour into it 10 liters of water, and then in the same bucket we have to add about 2.5 kg of chalk or use as the main component hydrated calx. It is recommended to add to this solution about 500 grams of brassy sulfate. To the addition of copper sulfate, we should mix it in the bucket with warm water. And at the end, we must add 100 grams of casein glue, and then mix everything and try to bring the composition to the watery mixture. This composition allows to disinfect the bark of trees in the garden and will keep the freshness of the tree for a long time. And, as the practice shows, the tree trunk will be white with such double whitewash even after long periods of rain. We recommend to you to pay attention to the fact that before the start of work on the whitewash, you need to delete all the lichens and mosses on the trees, and to view the bark on the dead parts.It is better to put ready-mix with small brush, from 10 to 15 cm in width. You have to realize that the spring whitewashing of fruit trees in the garden – it is a necessary work to protect the trees. The process does not take a lot of time and effort.
