Home gardeners in Washington State haven’t been able to buy lime sulfur spray in recent years.
In April 2008, Lilly-Miller voluntarily cancelled its Dormant Spray® registration with EPA. The confusion happened in summer 2009, when Washington State gardeners couldn’t find lime-sulfur products on store shelves even when the products were registered. We have entirely too much tolerance for stupid people in this country and it is inevitably going to doom the republic. Whether I agree or not with EPA, my job is not to “oppose” them; but I do have a job responsibility to remind pesticide users of pesticide law.
Wikipedia defines politics as “the process of making uniform decisions applying to all members of a group”. I agree there are competent, responsible people out there as well as incompetent and irresponsible people, as well as a spectrum of people in between those two extremes.
Lastly, one of the responsibilities of regulators, and of academics, is to evaluate the complete range of situations, not just the level of training or proficiency of all applicators. The cancer-research arm of the World Health Organization has announced that glyphosate, the world’s most widely used herbicide, is probably carcinogenic to humans. Chlorothalonil was found to be an important actor in the decline of the honey bee population, by making the bees more vulnerable to the gut parasite Nosema ceranae. The purpose of the Gardening page blog is to provide peer-reviewed, science-based information on specific topics.
This blog topic is lime sulfur- not glyphosate, chorothalonil, Bayer, Monsanto or honey bees.
If kept from freezing, in a dry and locked storage area, the 20 gallons should last fine over the course of several years.
Making your own lime-sulfur would be an option only if you had a strictly home-garden situation, and you were the only one who ate the fruit (fresh or processed), and there were no untoward environmental consequences. If you live in another part of the country, just web search on extension master gardener and include your land grant university name.
Amaryllis are emblems of the winter holiday season, their bold, flamboyant flowers decorating everything from greeting cards to wrapping paper to the holiday table itself.
Amaryllis, and other bulbs for forcing, can be found pre-forced or boxed for winter forcing. Other hybrid groups include double-flowered Dutch Hybrids (such as purple-red-striped ‘Double Record’ and pure white ‘Ice Queen’) and miniature amaryllis. Hippeastrum aficionados have many more groups of hybrids to explore, as well as the species themselves.
Whatever their season or place of bloom, few bulbs bring greater cheer than the members of the Hippeastrum tribe. Lime sulfur had been used for years to control fungi on roses, fruit trees and ornamentals. In early 2008, EPA questioned whether lime sulfur was so caustic that it should be reclassified as a restricted-use chemical. Bonide Products, Inc., which made a similar lime sulfur product, cancelled their registration at the same time. Another company, Voluntary Purchasing Group (VPG) also registered a lime-sulfur product but it’s both a home garden and commercial use. Home gardeners who bought and still had earlier lime sulfur products can use them until gone.
Master Gardeners can recommend lime sulfur products as one of several management options if and when suggested by WSU Hortsense.


Because a Japanese suicide cult decided to use cleaning products to realize their dream horticulturalists will be denied an effective product in use for over 100 years. Daniels, should collectively oppose the EPA when they do this sort of intrusive meddling rather than rolling over and scolding those who would seek solutions.
That sentiment has been expressed many, many times by our readers, so you are certainly not alone there. Their decision is based on irreversible eye damage risk, which is a physical characteristic of the active ingredient. Users then make personal decisions on whether or not to follow those reminders based on the facts of the case.
However, facts, science, human incompetence and politics all play a role in regulators creating regulations and academics making recommendations. I like that definition because it also gets to the issue of fairness…in other words, not giving preferential treatment to one person from a group but not another from the same group. However, unless I have the chance to talk with a person for at least a few minutes, it’s next to impossible to tell where on the spectrum they probably fall so I can specifically tailor my recommendations.
It’s a fact that humans routinely assess themselves at a higher competency level than they actually have.
Not all bad outcomes start from irresponsibility either – some of them come from accidents such as a hose bursting, a misstep on a ladder, or a hidden gopher hole next to the application site.
My local supplier has 20 gallons of lime-sulfur, and of my 2000 trees, I will go though 5 to 7 gallons every year. While each state department of agriculture, or the equivalent agency which enforces pesticide laws at the state level, may have slightly different definitions of “home garden” and “commercial” uses, I believe they would all agree that 2,000 trees would fall under “commercial” use. Known botanically as Hippeastrum, they trace their origin to a number of Hippeastrum species that inhabit the anything-but-wintry forests and slopes of tropical South America. Most come from overseas growers, who have conditioned the bulbs to provide immediate gratification upon planting.
More satisfactory, however, is a deep clay pot, which provides ballast to counterbalance the weight of the huge blooms. Best known are the large-flowered Dutch hybrids, with immense, wide-flaring, six-petaled blooms that owe much of their form and coloration to the red-flowered Bolivian native Hippeastrum leopoldii.
The latter have the appearance of scaled-down Dutch Hybrids, bearing 3- to 4-inch (rather than 8- to 10-inch) blooms on somewhat shorter stems (10 to 16 rather than 18 to 24 inches). Selections and hybrids of the butterfly amaryllis, Hippeastrum papilio, offer several takes on its curious green and maroon, asymmetrical flowers (look for ‘Grafitti’ and ‘Papilio Improved’). WSDA continued to register these products, and PICOL continued to list these products, through December 2010. The first reason is because it’s illegal to use pesticides on a crop or site not listed on the label. The lack of common sense is invariably at the government level, not at the interested individual level.
I’m a strong advocate of using data to make informed decisions and try my best to provide EPA with data that demonstrates the benefits, as well as the risks, of using individual active ingredients.
These issues all have to be included – as a conscious decision – in order to sufficiently protect people and the environment.
It’s a given that people on the top of any preference list like that feeling, and people on the bottom of any preference list hate that feeling. However, in order to make discussion relevant, we encourage comments pertinent to the post to which you are responding. From what I can tell from your comment, this is not the case so you would be risking quite a lot for no real gain…I say this because you have commercial sources of lime-sulfur available to you.


Plant hybridizers have interbred these species over the past 250 years, ultimately producing the showy-flowered, large-bulbed amaryllis hybrids that populate garden centers and bulb catalogs in fall.
Take an amaryllis bulb, half-bury it in a free-draining potting mix (such as Fafard® Natural & Organic Potting Soil with Resilience™), add water, and – voila – it happens.
To rebloom, the bulb needs a period of dry rest, approximating what its ancestors experience in the wild.
Joseph’s lily, Hippeastrum x johnsonii, whose trumpet-shaped, crimson, white-starred flowers (on 2-foot stems) have ornamented Southeast U.S.
The second reason is that the normal warning language: signal word, personal protective gear, restricted entry period, etc.
Your fruit production would be more than a single family could eat, even using all kinds of available fruit preservation techniques.
Plump, spear-shaped buds arise on thick fleshy stems, achieving spectacular full bloom within a few weeks after planting.
Bright light and relatively cool temperatures (60 to 65 degrees F) result in stockier growth, which also discourages toppling.
In their native habitats in eastern Brazil and in the foothills of the Andes, most Hippeastrum species produce flowers and foliage during the spring and summer rainy season, becoming quiescent when the weather turns drier in fall and winter.
More recent introductions – such as velvety burgundy-maroon ‘Red Pearl’ and tangerine ‘Naranja’ – are gradually supplanting some of the old standbys. And trumpet-flowered amaryllis such as raspberry-striped ‘Santiago’ and candy-pink ‘Estella’ – with elongated, funnel-shaped blooms – are becoming increasingly available from bulb sellers.
Whether you sell the fruit to a packing house, or through a roadside stand, or processed products made from the fruit, you have a commercial operation. Also relatively new to the scene are a race of Dutch Hybrids that bloom in 4 to 6 weeks from planting, rather than the typical 8 to 10. So, too, have the dazzling crimson blooms of oxblood lily, Rhodophiala bifida, which look for all the world like a dwarf amaryllis (indeed, the species was formerly included among the Hippeastrum).
The danger to the applicator and the environment is much greater when people use non-labeled products.
Regular watering and feeding after bloom, followed by withdrawal of water in summer, will typically trigger a new round of flowering when watering is gradually resumed in late fall. These “Christmas-Flowering” amaryllis come in the customary range of whites, pinks, and reds. Both make wonderful subjects for gardens from the Mid-Atlantic southward, the trumpets of oxblood lily providing a late-summer echo of St.
To my knowledge, lime-sulfur products are still classified as general use, meaning you don’t have to have a pesticide license in order to buy or use the product. Many amaryllis fanciers move their plants to a partly shaded outdoor location after the last frost date, bringing them back inside for their dry rest period. Plants generally do best if left in their containers and repotted only when absolutely necessary (once every 4 or 5 years should do). Dutch Hybrids (and many other Hippeastrum hybrids and species) are candidates for gardens in the lower South, where they’ll winter over with minimal protection.
