Damping off

Does anyone know why I can't buy Chestnut compound any more? I always used it, after pricking out seedling, to water with. I can't even find it online.

    I've always used it, I think health and safety have gone mad again! Does anyone know what we can use instead?

    Copper sulpate is still available.which is basically what Cheshunt was. No longer allowed to be sold as a fungicide, but can be bought (I am told) in Wine making outlets..
