Interesting note on Facebook:
Bee Fact: Some garden and potting composts are on sale that contain Imidacloprid – a deadly insecticide manufactured by Bayer. It is highly toxic to all insects and all soil life, including beneficial earthworms. The insecticide is taken up by plants, and if you use this compost in hanging baskets, bees seeking water from the moist compost may be killed.
