Re: Cult: TBs: Sulfur

 Sharon are you saying this garden sulfur helped get rid of leaf spot.  I 
would think there wouldn't be any odour  to the rhizomes of the Iris by 
mixing it in the soil.  Did you notice any odour.  I would like to find 
something that would help with leaf spot and rot.  Thanks for the info..... >>

It appeared to be effective in combating leaf spot, or I wouldn't have 
continued to use it -- but readily admit that was decades ago.  I did trim 
the affected foliage first, then had to hold my breath while dusting sulfur 
on the trimmed fans.  The "haircut" plus sulfur treatment did seem to be 
effective -- and I don't recall any lingering odors.  Can't say how much the 
lack of rot can be attributed to the cultivars, the raised beds, or the 
sulfur treatment.
