Victoria, ring them again and say it's not what you ordered.     Re affirm your disappointment and ask what they are prepared to do about it.  You have nothing to lose by speaking up and everything to gain.  If you don't get satisfaction ask to speak to the manager and, failing that, say there is a thread on a popular garden forum re plant suppliers and growers.  

Never yet have I failed to get replacememt, reimbursement, etc from any purchase I have made. Its just a case of standing your ground.

No wouldn't splint it rosemummy but agree with others that you cut back to remove the damaged limb,  I would be inclined to remove it at the base or as near as damn it.

That's bad news Punkdoc.  Hopefully you can recover some of the shrubs and insurance will cover the gh.  Maybe go for something better?  Don't get your snow here......oops!  Tempting fate .........but do get plenty of rain and last year it did plenty of damage to roads and environment.  It's just ...weather wise.....the darkest time of winter but countdown already towards spring has begun 

hope you don't let this episode drag you down 

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Philippa just read your post.  Feel so much sympathy for you.  Could you talk to your neighbours with a view to minimising damage in the future although the son sounds like a loser to me.  Talk to them about your claim on their insurance......inform your own insurance company and ask their advice.

perhaps someone would like the fallen wood?  Free for taking away?  

Dont let your neighbours think you will accept their irresponsibility
