Contaminated Manure

I was recently left a comment by Green Lane Allotments about the problems that there have been with the contaminated manure and I though it would be beneficial for all my readers to see it so I am actually putting it on as a post as then you can all keep up to date on the info. if you want.

Thank you Green Lane Allotments for getting in touch with me and letting me know about this issue...Any further updates you think myself and my readers know you can add to this post in comment form and I will publish them.

I'm sure you must be aware of the problems experienced by allotment holders last year due to the use of manure contaminated by a persistent herbicide called aminopyralid. Information has been collated about this problem from the links on this page
Just to update on the latest re aminopyralid contamination in case you would like to provide updates on your website or to allotment holders in your area.

The latest information re manure contamination is posted on my website here
I have also sent out a email for circulation by everyone I know that has been affected which is here which you may find useful to circulate to allotment holders in your area.

It is particularly important that gardeners be aware of the need for caution when obtaining manure in light of the fact that the government are now considering reinstating the licence that was temporarily suspended last year. As this is a concern to many gardeners you may wish to publicise an a e-petition that has been started here

I am posting updates as I get them on my blog just in case you want to keep a watching brief.

P.s. I really hope all the links I have put in work...I'm quite new to this so Please forgive me if the links don't work properly...the addresses are correct so pasting them into your browser would work.


  1. Thanks Tanya that's great

    For some reason the links don't work but as you say the addresses are correct - sorry but not knowing the system you use I can't help you.

  2. Thank you Tanya for this invaluable information. I will check out the links.
    If you email me I can let you know how to link to websites (its a bit long-winded to put on your comments page!) - you will find my email link on my Profile Page.

  3. Thanks for the offer but my Hubby knows how to do all the coding...He just wasn't around when I did the post!!


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
