Another example of an Englishmans  fair play, as you say, an example to the world.

Put some sour sauce on it then.

Disappointed with new shed.. how far to take it.

From personal experience pursuing the credit card company gives the best chance of success . Pay everything on the card except the disputed item,,they will not want to commence proceedings and will put pressure on the supplier to settle.

How did you pay?

i had a similar problem earlier in the year, credit card co was very negative until I threatened to cancel then leaving a balance for the sum in dispute.

eventually partial refund from supplier and £50 from Lloyds for their negligence.

an untreated shed is not of merchantable quality, cancel the contract.

"Exposing it thoughtlessly to foreign bodies" 

I have been on the beach in Corfu and quite agree.

Just had a strimmer serviced, £80.

i think it's time to accept that products made in China should be dumped and treated as a disposable item.

New can be bought for £80.

I have learnt not to plant too closely. I had a great tendency to plant tomatoes and watch them grow to the roof, become entangled,impossible to pick fruit, water and tend.i created ideal conditions for all manner of pests.

This year grew just 10 plants of different varieties, 2 pots to a tray with gravel, best year yet.

Never have any room for growing in winter, too many over wintering tender plants.
