Humber Avenue Community Allotments
The Aminopyralid, sometimes found in compost, can be devastating for your crops. it is from a selective weedkiller used on grasses so may be found in lawn weedkiller. It can get into commercially bought compost via various routes.
I have read that it can take up to two years to disappear from your soil. As much care as possible is taken to ensure that organic material delivered to Humber Allotments is free from such chemicals.
