Re: Rose wood and spraying

Dear All,

I did of course think of whether their were pesticides in the wood (albeit
after the fish died!), but since we haven't sprayed the plants in over two
years, and the wood had been cut and left on the compost heap all summer, I
doubted that was the problem.

Of course, I don't know anything about the persistence of the chemicals the
previous owners of the garden used. Incidentally, since pond keeping is so
popular here, many of the garden chemicals are fish friendly.

All the best,
