Hi lb191 


What are you training your tree to do ... the Highland Fling?    


Sorry 


Can you post a photo of the tree and another of its injury please.  Click on the camera icon to start - it it doesn't upload reduce the size.

Sorry Joyce ... yes .......................... I have known Allium triquetrum to be mistaken for 'white bluebells' 

New lawn - should I be worried?

You say that  " I had said that we wanted the old lawn removed and replaced"  ... those were his instructions and I think I'm right in saying they form the basis of a verbal contract ... he is in breach of that contract ... he did not carry out the work as instructed ... do not pay him and contact Trading Standards. 


I would also take dated photographs and get someone (another gardening professional would be good - perhaps someone from a GC) to look at what he's done and be prepared to speak up on your behalf.


If he wants paying he'll have to prove in a Small Claims Court that he's done what you engaged him to do in a professional manner ... he won't be able to do that. I don't think he'll bother.  He sounds a lazy so and so.

Hi Pottiepam  good to see you - sad about the robin - I think one parent can sometimes rear a nest of young ... this website bears it out ...

As I think you know, we get supplies of mini live mealworms and put them in a dish for the robins here, so that might help ... we order them via Amazon and keep them in the salad drawer in the fridge.  Our robins get so tame they take mealworms from our hand now they're used to us putting them out for them.
