Winter wash

ANNA MC DONALD asked 12 years ago

I need to clean my trees with something but the shops say winter wash is gone off the market. I get a lot of moss on the trees, is there anything I can do?

Trees with a lot of moss are hungry and need feeding with fruit fertiliser. If trees are adequately fed, they produce lots of foliage that shades out the moss and lichen, neither of which is any harm to the tree.

Rather, they provide shelter for beneficial insects.

So, winter washing is now a thing of the past and the washes have been taken off the market.
