Neem oil for Valotta lily bulbs

Zone Gisborne, New Zealand | davebeard8 added on April 26, 2015 | Answered

Can Neem oil be used to dip Valotta lily bulbs in for transportation? We have Valotta lilies and are transporting them over a 3 day period. After removal from bags, we wish to soak and protect the plantlets while transporting them across country before re-bagging. Will neem oil be safe for them and protect against insects and fungus?

From my research it can be used as a dip or spray on the bulbs. Allow them to dry throughly on paper and roll so all sides are dry.
