    I very much doubt it, otherwise no synthetic fertiliser could be used. On Levingtons packaging, I think it just says, organic, no peat. There is only a very small percentage of cattle reared on organic farms anyways. So if it is available, the manure will probably be more expensive.

    We used to use the low modulus neutral cure silicon for glazing, I agree its softer than the usual type you see. It actually sticks to polycarbonate as well.
