The next time I wanted a bag I was told the EU had listed 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.

In Germany, EU regulations are strictly for other countries


You may jest but ignoring EU based laws seemed a common trait in all
countries except the UK where they were carried out to the letter.

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

After a bit of looking for it, I now see that 25kg bags of ferrous
sulphate ARE available, for typically 30 - plus various charges for
delivery (some reasonable, some extortionate). I reckon that something
like 35 total won't break the bank, and will last me a year or three.
