In that case, look out for Manteau de Hermine. That  is much lower growing and double like the one in your picture.

And brightly coloured handles make no difference whatsoever. Somewhere in the garden is a bright yellow handled trowel which I lost this afternoon.

I thought the leaves looked a bit too long and narrow for that.

Grisellinia littoralis at a guess.

Nasty grubs making a meal of my vibirnum

There are a lot of things which eat leaves to skeletal remains. Some people have described the smell from these grubs as being like Cat urine. As I said, all you can do is spray with a contact insecticide. Not keen on using them myself, but sometimes you have to.

ID for 2 plants. please.

I would go with a Calceolaria for the first one too.

Does the Viburnum smell appallingly bad? If so then you have a Viburnum beetle infestation. You need to spray with a contact insecticide on the under side of the leaves too.
