In this garden I have been known to lose my wife.

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.

total guess. Styrax japonica?

Plant ID please

Sorry to disagree but that looks more like Sedum confusum (as used to be, changed its name to something else recently but my brain has not caught up yet).
