I use oil & lime sulphur mixed together to spray my dormant trees in the late winter. The sulphur bottle says not to use this product on apricot trees. Is there a safe product that I can mix with the oil to spray my apricot trees?

I think I just answered your question in your previous post: I presume you're using a protectant spray to help keep your apricot tree disease free. If so, use a copper based fungicide such as Micro-cop, but never a lime/sulfur based spray. Lime/sulfur can be used on apple trees but not on apricot trees. If you're spraying to kill overwintering insects and their eggs, you can use a dormant oil spray. Hope this clarifies things for you.
