Disappearing Garden Chemicals

Every year, more and more traditional garden products are withdrawn at the behest of the European Union. Withdrawal from the market does not necessarily mean that the product is harmful or dangerous but can merely mean that the manufacturer cannot justify the considerable expense to get the item ‘approved’. This is a ridiculous state of affairs and plays into the hands of the big manufacturers at the expense of the small.

As each product is withdrawn it is, as often as not, the German company Bayer which seems to come up with an expensive alternative.

Hmm… Maybe I am just being paranoid.
