Why & When to Use Dormant Oil

What are horticultural oils/ dormant oils?

Oils have been used for hundreds of years to control insects and pests that threaten plants, especially fruit trees. Sprayed in late winter such as now, dormant oil helps eradicate pests that are known to be a threat to your trees and plants. We spray our plants and trees at the nursery at this time of the year. As we always try to be as organic as possible (and never use any neonicotinoids, which is another post for another day!), this is a natural spray we use to keep our plants healthy for you and keep our nursery flourishing without major insect problems. Watch our informative video to learn more on why and when you should spray your plants!
