Stir tin well before use and frequently during use. This is important to achieve a uniform colour. Apply 2-3 uniform coats with a brush. Apply the second coat after the first has soaked in. This product may take 3-5 days to dry fully under typical conditions. The exact colour may be affected by any previous treatment and is darker on sawn, more absorbent, weathered and dark wood. Try a representative area first, to ensure acceptable appearance when dry. Protect plants during application. Avoid splashing other surfaces including glass and brickwork. Clean off glass whilst still wet. Treated wood must be allowed to dry thoroughly (allow several weeks) before introducing plants into greenhouses, cold frames, etc or fixing climbing plants.
The drying time is 2-5 days but can vary depending on the nature of the surface and the weather conditions.
