Wonky, if that's the problem with yours, I'll have a rummage and see if I can find the receipt - it's only a few weeks since we bought that - they can give you another one - we'll tell them Verdun says so!!!

Good morning Nicola

How very weird - I dreamt about riding an elephant!!!

Can you post us some pictures of the elephant (lawn and surrounds) so we can get an idea of the options available to you?

To post a photo on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post - afraid it doesn't work for iphones (yet).  If you can't make it work let us know

If you're leaving until spring just ensure that there are no birds nesting in it. 

You may find this video interesting

I saw a similar regeneration technique carried out on two large yews in the churchyard opposite my mother in law's home.  A few years on and the yews are wonderful, about 10ft tall and you'd never suspect that they'd been cut back so hard.

Having spoken to Wonky I know that she was taken care of by a qualified First Aider who was a guest in the house, so I'm not stressing tooooooooooo much
