For the past few years we have been growing Cosmos "Candy Stripe" in the garden and at the lottie as we love the colours and the variety of the flowers They can be anything to all white all scarlet and countless beautiful variations in between...

...no two are ever quite alike.

Sorry that this is probably not the best place for this but I couldn't find a contact address.
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 http://www.glallotments.btik.com/p_Contaminated_Manure.ikml
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 http://www.glallotments.btik.com/p_herbicide_latest.ikml
I have also sent out a email for circulation by everyone I know that has been affected which is here http://www.glallotments.btik.com/attachments/contaminated_manure_alert.pdf 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 epetition that has been started here http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/aminopyralidban/ The petition closes on 23 October so we need a big urgent push to increase the number of signatures.

I am posting updates as I get them on my blog http://glallotments.blogspot.com/ just on case you want to keep a watching brief.
