lime sulphur and leaflets

Post by betsyw on 5th July 2013, 10:34

Got the sprayer, goit the lime sulphur - and now suddenly I'm getting baby shoots on the roses.

Should I spray anyway, and just sacrifice the first round of leaflets? Or can I paint it on? Or what? First year with LS and I feel like a ninny.

I asked a similar question recently Betsy and was told the LS wouldn't do any harm to new growth.Sorry can't remember who it was.

If you are concerned, just halve the dosage, then you should be ok, I have in the past used lime sulphur during summer using this method without any problems.

I am wondering if I should spray my Pierre de Ronsard with LS. I have been told not to prune it for 2-3 years as it's only young. It still has its leaves so I'm unsure whether to leave the leaves on and spray, or remove the leaves and spray, or not spray at all. Any advice on this would be welcome.

Neptune, I have in the past stripped off all the leaves on climbers and the time of pruning the other roses, where I strip all the leaves as well. Should I continue my method with climbers or would it be advantages to just leave it?

What about the roses that aren't fully deciduous? Like Teas, Noisettes and Chinas...? scratch

To be honest we have never used it.

Sorry no we have used it once but that was a long time ago and we only used it on a couple of DA's that suffered from all sorts of ailments. It did not make any difference if I recall correctly. The plants are no longer with us due to there love of all things fungal.
