Imprelis Data Sheet: DuPont™ Imprelis™ Herbicide
EPA has launched an expedited investigation into the potential link between DuPont's herbicide Imprelis and damage to certain evergreen trees, particularly Norway spruce and white pine trees.
Three companies sued DuPont last month in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware for allegedly misrepresenting the safety of Imprelis and concealing or omitting the fact that it seriously damages trees. They contend applications of the pesticide were followed within weeks by lethal damage to mature evergreen trees

Trying to be as organic as I can with my garden. Made relative peace with the ants, so the Nippon powder has been banished. Also trying to use natural fertilisers like crushed egg shells for my Tommy's and Peppers, which also help to keep Mr Slug and Mr Snail away.

My garden is entirely organic. I just let it grow and never do anything with it! Much to the disgust of my neighbour whose garden looks like Monty Don owns it.
I like having it as a wild garden, we get loads of animals in there. Local cats, foxes, hedgehogs and the blackbirds nest in my ivy bush.
