The next time I wanted a bag I was told the EU had listed it
as hazardous (25kg might give you a hernia??), and you could only get it
in tiny 1kg boxes - which cost around 7 pounds.


Eh? In Germany: 25 kg bag of ferrous sulphate 15,95 EUR plus 6,90 postage,
orderable online, delivery in 3-4 days, as of today.

Seems the EU got blamed for a lot that just ain't so.


You can still buy certain chemicals in reasonable bulk quantities BUT
you will find that there is no mention of some of their previous
specific uses because they have been banned from such use.


I find that it's listed as: "Eisend√ľnger Moosverdr√§nger 25 kg". That
transliterates to "iron fertilizer moss displacer 25 kg".
