Lime sulfur products

Hi Mirai folks. I have been looking for lime sulfur to apply to deadwood on a few applicable trees in my garden. I have been to nurseries and have been met with perplexed faces. The only product I have found was at our local Ace hardware, and it is for bathing dogs. Is dog bathing sulfur what we use? Suggestions?

Yes Lime Sulfur is either illegal or banned in many states for horticultural uses. I know i’ve still been able to purchase it at certain Bonsai shows/conventions in CA. However, you can also buy it for bathing dogs and essentially it’s the same thing. One important thing to note is the strength or percentage/concentration of lime sulfur in the dog bath. Generally when sold for dog bath, it’s sold in a higher concentration compared to when sold for Bonsai. You may likely need to add a specific amount of water when using the lime sulfur on jin/share or as a dormant spray.


You can putchase from Andy at Superfly Bonsai.


Thank you for the information guys. Super helpful.
