How long does Roundup last in the soil?

You are correct. However, the ban will start in 2015. It is a start...

It seems that Holland has just banned Roundup...

I am dismayed by some comments here. Glyphosate is an appalling chemical. If is not sprayed on wheat, then why are there glyphosate residues in bread?

UK has high levels of glyphosate residues on food. Glyphosate has been linked to some of our worst diseases.  

Don't buy it.

Some really interesting comments here!  We were in Brittany - sadly the car was full of wine & bikes so could not take advantage! Also, I'm not sure of the regulations (if any) about taking plants from one country to another.

We're just back from a few days in France. I had the opportunity to look around a garden centre and was quite shocked to see how much cheaper plants were - about 50 - 75%. These were usual seasonal plants - heathers, perennials and shrubs. Why is this?

Ask your neighbour if you can have a small clump in the spring. They grow prolifically - are you sure you want them?

I just tried to message you but the website would not let me. 

Found this in Derbyshire.  http://dadbeep.blogspot.co.uk/p/next-meeting.html  

It may be near you. Also check out the Natural Beekeeping Trust for information. They are based in Sussex but the website is good. 

This chap is excellent too.  http://www.bee-friendly.co.uk/  

Good luck

We have Warre hives. They are not a joke and easy to run. Try to find a 'Natural Beekeeping' group near you and join them if possible. Where are you? Their emphasis is on caring for the bee, not honey so much.
