Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.
Happy new year to you all xx

I took on an extra 5 pole of lotty land with a known clubroot problem last year. I was told to use armillatox, there was a little root distortion but the crop was good.. seems to do what it says on the tin!!
Look here    http://www.armillatox.com/

Mikegee,

It has been illegal to use armillatox as a pesticide on the soil for nearly 10 years now.

http://www.rhs.org.uk/Gardening/Help-advice/Garden-chemicals-and-pesticides/Chemicals

What you choose to do in your own garden is, of course, your own business, but on this forum we cannot condone or encourage breaking the law.

Thanks.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Totally agree with both statements. It is also illegal to extract the oxalic acid from rhubarb leaves by heating them in water with soap  to make a pesticide for white fly, etc.  :(
 By the way it seems that it is still not illegal to use armillatox as a pesticide but only to sell it as such. So by using it in a non commercial  manner is legal and also acceptable in non E.U. countries for commercial use, (different trade names apply) . I guess it's down to the individual.

I find your manner quite irresponsible mikegee, it was made illegal for a reason and chemicals like this are proven to offer gardeners only a short-term gain for a long-term loss

I have found clubroot more of a problem on no-dig beds and where my crop rotation has been less than perfect

The above answers have nothing to do with what i asked.armillatox does not work you only have the company saying it does they will not pay for trails to prove it, i think this answers it self. No more on armillatox please thank you :)

I'm sorry but you are wrong on this point too.

The revocation covered sale and use.
