Cheshunt Compound

For those of you who use the above and i think there are a lot.It has been drawn to my notice that we are going to loose this product now.
It is being withdrawn from sale end of November 2010 and will be illegal to use from the end of November 2011
This i believe leaves only one other product available to the amateur gardener to use for disease control on root crops,How long will that last before the EU or other meddling bodies out law that.

Its used to prevent fungal disease, which cause young plants and seedlings to damp off.
Example. Have you ever had a batch of pansy's, planted them in a container and for some reason in a weeks time one or two will keel over an you find they have no roots.That's fungal disease.
