I guess this is a good place for this.

Don't know if anyone heard of this but this is a problem they have in the UK at this moment.

Don't think it is a problem here as I believe the products from Dow chemicals containing the harmful chemical Aminopyralid were not sold here. I am open to correction on that. Wink They were grassland weedkillers, so allotments converted from farmers grassland field should have been worst hit. I suppose the best way to test for this is to pot on a few sacrificial plants and wait a week or two to see any effcts of leaf curling etc.
