Or do you stick to a routine app which seems to be about 3-4months or so, even though a cold snap may stunt growth? Just trying to be as thorough as I can. This stuff ain't cheap!
Same rate. You will love it. I would start looking at about 8 to 10 weeks in and see how the plant is responding. I would advise you to let the plant to come out of it your first time around. That way you will understand what you are seeing and better understand your follow up apps in the future. If that makes sense.

Well just to check in its been about two weeks since I did my first app and the viburnum I treated looks the same as when I first trimmed it. Things are starting to slow down a bit anyway but so far so good.

If you applied right after pruning ....they will look like that for a good bit

Patriot, I've been using the atrimmec. Poet, that's exactly what I did. Now I find myself thinking that I just need to spray it on all the viburnum and Eugenia and ligustrums I see. This property also has about 12 ligustum trees that are all "umbrella's". It seems to be holding them nice and tight as well. So far I am pleased with the product. I am through about half the gallon of the stuff now but I can definitely see the value in it, and its a lot less physically demanding than trimming hedges every other week.
