If you have your suspicions hayleyddgreen how do you feel about paying them a visit?  

I have a suspicion the low life who did it used glyphosate.  If so it would not have any continuing effect.  ....,my reason is this is easily available and the ads that describe it as "killing everything down to the roots"" would prob appeal to such a simple cretin. 

I once chased down...well, took 4 weeks...a guy who hit and run ( scratches only) my niece's car.  He was shocked I caught him but even more so when I demanded £400 in cash from him.  Which....of course...I got 

not sure it will be cost effective to test for the chemical 

no time for these people but, yes, get your security up and running asap and then look to replanting.

Buying plants on-line

Bumped up the good guys thread 

frithsoken, awful service there from Victoriana Nurseries.   Have you accepted their derisory offer?  If not, ask for a full refund.  Speak to the manager, mention you are on a garden forum and their response is publicly noted.

even if you have accepted their offer contact them again...from the slug to the state of the delivery (noted by the courier) to the quality of the plants to the awful non-existent customer service you have enough grounds for a full refund 

ALWAYS complain until you are totally or in the high street.  

Good luck 

......the good guys

if it is because of the sun the leaves will darken again as autumn approaches but help it along with extra watering and epsom salts.
