Craig at Ellis Hollow just made the most interesting posting that I think you hotel owners/ developers and property managers that (hopefully) read this blog might be interested in. Pink Ugly mix — to save your beautiful Christmas-like trees from poaching. The formula was originally developed by Gerardo Sciarra from Cornell University. Pink Ugly Mix is a red spray that turns trees icky pink as it dries. The substance, which is made of water (1gallon), Wilt-pruf (4oz), red food coloring (2 oz) and hydrated lime (15 oz – not agricultural) actually improves the soil as it wears off. Genius!!
Oh– and while the name implies they are ugly….I think they look a little festive….
