The two times I used Ringwood, it was really slow to start ... I'd give it some time. Did you aerate?

I realize this was almost a year ago but do you recall the outcome? I'm sitting here almost 24 hours into a similar situation. Not a peep yet and the smack pack didn't swell. Normally I wouldn't be worried but I'm heading out of town in a few hours. Hoping to see a little movement before I head out.
