Just want to get Mirai forum users thoughts on whether you all use lime sulfur on olive tree deadwood? Curious to get your thoughts.
For me it is unnatural. I would use woodhardener if at all.
Drop a photo.
I would…I use lime sulfer to PRESERVE the wood. I do not like the stark white look. Dont take it that far. Natural grey / off white. Deadwood should be a subtle part of the design, not a ‘in your face’ centerpiece.
Wood hardener leaves a plastic SHEEN on the deadwood. I do NOT like the look. Maybe a summer or two will mellow it. I use it only on lost csuses…
The dead wood on this Olive has never been touched yet. It’s a really hard wood. But I do think it will need preserving at some point.
Ya… now, that’s awsome.
I have never acquired a olive. Not for the lack of trying. Not many wild ones here… US Pacific NW…
About where are you Nick…
