It seems that the EEC have decided that most of our usual blight controllers are to be removed from our usual outlets. Apart from these bright sparks trying to control every other aspect of my life, has anyone any idea what will be available? I sow Roosters, I like Roosters, they keep all winter< their also subject to blight, hence my question, Thanks.

Thanks, I googled back to old archives on this forum and read Michael say that Copper Sulphate is one of the most dangerous substance to use in the garden, I think I remember he was"nt to impressed with Horsetail either. Still looking for Dithane, thats supposed to be bad as well, If you believe everything you would wonder how we survived to adulthood atall!

no blight around these days far too cold. I think the regulations have gone over the top completely, THe organic wing are totally opposed to "chemicals" per se but approve Copper and Nicotine not very consistent.

tunnelofhens - keep looking for dithane. I managed to find the last tin of it in my local Woodies. I rang them in advance and they found the tin for me and reserved it. If I were you, I would ring Woodies in Mullingar/Athlone/Carrick-on-Shannon/Cavan. They are not a million miles from you and they probably stock it.
