Hi Melspad   I think this may well be the problem you've read about. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=477

Farmers in the UK cannot and do not use 'growth hormones' on their cattle - it would be highly illegal as the practice is banned within the EU.  Some info here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_hormone_controversy

It is however allowed in the USA.

Morning the rest of you

Not sure if Wonky's going to get the chance to post this morning, but I'm sure she won't mind me letting you know that life is much more peaceful now as most of the people living above have moved on and the couple that remain are pleasant and quiet. 

Enjoy the hairdo LilyP

I think there's a theory that horses eat hay and the seeds pass through into the manure, but if it's been stacked and allowed to rot down that shouldn't be a problem anyway. Putting it direct onto the ground might result in grass weeds growing.

Good morning Chicky   I've sent my apologies for tennis ... I'll see how my neck is for driving - if it's ok I'll go down to Suffolk and visit Ma - it's been quite a while since my last visit.
