Deadwood preservation on bonsai

Lime sulphur has long been used to preserve deadwood on bonsai trees. The result of using undiluted lime sulphur is a bleached, white appearance of deadwood commonly seen on juniper species. If you prefer a less stark result, add a little black ink. This treatment should be applied at least annually for the best results; after first thoroughly cleaning the deadwood (The wood should be slightly moist when applying the lime sulphur).

Suggested application rates

Dilute at a ratio of 1:20 (Lime sulphur : water). Or 1:30 at higher temperatures ie. above 20 deg C.

Apply to trees during winter dormancy when nighttime temperatures are close to zero and daytime temperatures between 10 - 20 deg. You should repeat the treatment 2 - 3 times, roughly one month apart. If the trees are actively growing when the 3rd treatment is due or temperatures are above 20 deg then rather skip it.

Ensure you thoroughly wet the needles, branches and trunk. Lime sulphur dripping onto the soil is ok, however do not immerse the roots in the treatment. Should you wish to avoid staining containers you will need to wrap them with wet towels or newspaper and allow the tree to drip dry before removing the protection.

No wetting agent is needed.

Do not spray lime sulfur on spruce, hemlock, azalea and tropical trees. Avoid spraying recently wired trees or those recently repotted. It can burn them. - Boon Manakitivipart.

    Lime Sulphur use.

    I purchased Lime Sulpher from Terry's website after watching his video on exactly how to use it. It is a product that needs careful handling and application. Great to have expert advice on tap! I will be using it with confidence going forward.
