Prevent Pests and Protect Your Plants
with Dormant Sprays
you have had problems in the past with bugs and diseases attacking
your deciduous trees, shrubs and roses, apply a dormant spray during
the winter months and help prevent future damage.
Dormant sprays are used when the plant is dormant - after all the
leaves have fallen off and before the new leaves appear. When spraying
fruit trees, avoid spraying when the blossom petals are present.
Spraying when the blossom petals are present can damage the blossom,
and thus removing the fruit.
Swansons you’ll find an all natural line of dormant spray and a fine grade parafin-based All Seasons
Spray Oil by Bonide, Lime Sulfur by Hi-Yield plus a traditional
Copper spray for disease control.
- For Roses use Lime Sulfur and oil as a combination spray
- For Fruit Trees with Seeds use Lime Sulfur and oil combination
- For Fruit Trees with Pits use Liquid Copper and oil spray
- For Deciduous Shrubs use Liquid Copper spray
- For Deciduous Flowering Trees use Liquid Copper spray
Lime-Sulfur and Copper are fungicides that aid in the prevention
of blight, fungus, and diseases. The oil provides a suffocating
film that kills insects that are overwintering as adults, as well
as their eggs, and prevents new insects from taking up residency.
Apply either product to the effected tree or shrub on a dry day
when temperatures are above freezing. Try not to apply the dormant
sprays on windy days. These are general recommendations. You will
want to read the product label for specific application use. For
