Default Hedge growth inhibitor

Can you still buy this stuff? I'm fed up of trimming my privet and
laylandii hedges. It was sold as "Cutlass" but I can't find it
anywhere. Has it been banned by the EU along with many other garden
chemicals. The active ingredient is dikegulac sodium.

........ "don't have hedges" ? Alternatives? Fences or walls. But then
we will have to 'grow' something over them. Oh! Like ivy? ;-))

........ Why "especially Leylandii" ?
Our privet grows much, much more quickly than the leylandii.

Haven't heard much about 'growth inhibitors' recently. Either out of
fashion, or legislated out, I guess.

the stuff you want is Scotts' Cutlass but its on the banned lists for at
least one council (just a quick search) so I presume all.

Agreed - but they were there when I bought the house and it would be
one hell of a job to revove them now.

Yes. Whether it is sane or not is another matter entirely.

I read it stopped manufacture because it cost too much to have it pass eu test regulations etc. I've got one bottle of cutlass left,I bought 4 when I read it was not to be around much longer.125ml sorts my privet to one cut in may,neighbours privet 3 cuts so I'm looking for an alternative.
