What I like about it is that it is low cost and it really works.  Powdered 
sulfur has been use for centuries as a disease control and it is very  safe 
to humans! Russ H.

Many years ago I attended a study weekend at which Paul  Christian gave a 
lengthy talk on the propagation of bulbs. (I think it was  at a hardy plant 
study weekend in Lynwood, Washington.) He extolled the  virtues of sulfur 
as a 
fungicide to use on the wounds some propagation  techniques produce, 
offering as 
one of its great advantages "it stays  where you put it."

Yes, sulfur: good stuff.
