Bulkerb, I'm betting they wont let you go.  Tell them how you feel and ask them if they are satisfied.  If they think you will leave they will soon get the message ....and shut up

Bulkerb....I don't do pretence or patronise anyone.  

your skills are are top notch.

 Give these people the brush off.....possibly they think they can manage without you now you have shown them how and want to save on your charges.  Their loss

None of us all the answers aym .....we share a hobby we enjoy, don't we?  And a good debate is refreshing.  Enjoy your garden

I never use old stocks...fertilisers, manures, pellets or compost Green Magpie for the very reason you quote.  Bear in mind though you can google anything and the info is variable to say the least. 

If you really suspect your batch is toxic contact B & Q....ask for their technical dept.  This could be interesting

How much of that is down to you bulkerb? 

All looks superb to me.  See no reason for complaints.  What exactly did your employers want from you ? 

Take your skills elsewhere cos most will appreciate them

Bulkerb, yes post your photos.  If you are asking for frank opinions we will give them

So, any comments made now would be pointless

Keep us posted aym during the summer to see how they progress.  Agree with GD, it's the roots that are most important right now with hellebores esp so I would pot on asap

Green Magpie I think that's rather an odd conclusion. B & Q would be in big, big trouble if there chippings were so toxic
