David,
The broad-spectrum organophosphate insecticide Chlorpyrifos, which is the chemical contained in Suscongreen is also a content of "Nexion Neu".
Nexion Neu is avaiable  in Germany  against grubs on cabbage, carrots and onions (only allowed for this indication).

David, Re Suscon Green Monro sell it down your way it costs about 140 for 10kg, I could get it for you from my old wholesaler but how to get it from Sussex to you, I am still using what I had before moving. It needs to be in the compost before the eggs are laid.

Thanks for that Gerd, it does not seem to be available here.

Derek, I think 10kg would be enough to see out my active gardening life-span! ;D as well as enabling me to buy far fewer square plastic pots! I think I shall continue to use one or other of the  Provado lines as my all purpose insecticides. If I get 'bugs' that survive Provado I will have to learn to live with them.

SuSCon Green is no longer available to the gardening public in NZ, hasn't been, for about 3 or 4 years I think. One has to be a registered agricultural contractor (with certificate to show you passed the training requirements) to purchase or use it. I have some left over from a 25kg bag purchased by my local alpine group and divided among those who wanted it.

Narcissus aren't the only bulb to be rooting early, Iris winogradowii is getting roots as well.  I notice that my Narcissus are much smaller than last year because the hot April caused them to hay off before time.

We find that Iris winogradowii and I. Katharine Hodgkin always start early into root. They spent little time "dormant".
Hope Maureen had a good birthday.... glad it didn't rain until the next day!!

While removing new tubers from Dactylorhizas I accidentally dug up more narcissus and Tulips that have rooted already. Both right under the Dactyls.

Maybe like Ian Y I have run out of planting space.
