Great Video! I have been working with and creating bonsai for about 2.5 to
3 years now. I am at the point where I need to work with dead wood. This
video couldn't have come at a better time. I have a Barberry bonsai that
needs lime sulfur and I really did not know much about it until now. Thanks
you for your knowledge.

Author pacovl46 (2 years)
Yeah, the tree is still alive, but the bleached looking parts he applied it
to are already dead.

Lime sulfur leaves the subject looking horrible. It makes it look fake. Why
do people keep using it? At least he puts ink in the mixture to wash out
the white.

Author pacovl46 (2 years)
I think it looks great! Also, if you keep your trees outside the sun will
weather the parts where the lime sulfur has been applied and it will begin
to look more natural again.

I am just new at this, and I have a couple of questions. You said that this
strong solution would kill living tissue, and it appears that you are
applying this solution to a living tree.. Is not the whole tree living, or
is part of it dead already? Also, you said that a weak solution of LS would
protect from fungus and insects... can you use it for lillys and roses,
etc. Thank you. RosLynn

Author BackSeatHump (3 years)
You might want to write it down beforehand and rehearse what it is you want
to say, before you switch on the camera, Tom.
