The soil mix with imidocloprid is quite hard to find even in the London area. 
Instead look for a new plant spray called Provado Ultimate Bug Killer which 
is a mix of imidocloprid and methiocarb and is the first spray I have ever 
had success with in killing spider mites. It is very effective and systemic 
also. Its brand new so again you may have to search, look for a yellow and 
blue can with blue cap. Hope all is well with you. Its made by Bayer and they 
have a website so maybe that will help with distributors: www.bio.uk.co or 
call: 020 8344 6808.
Best wishes,
Geoffrey Kibby
