I had the same problem, I also think it was mice. Hopefully eradicated the problem and broad beans now doing well. I'm keeping my fingers crossed with my peas.

If you do intend to dig the plant up I would take it back to the nursery, most plants at a nursery have a twelve month guarantee. Then you could plant a new one after Improving the soil.

If you mean Imperata ( not sure about the spelling ) you should cut just above ground before the new shoots appear,but not too soon if it's still frosty.

I don't think mango because your fruit is growing singly and the mangos in your picture are growing in a bunch.

I've looked up fruit trees growing in Thailand and can't match up the leaves and fruit to your picture. Sorry,

I've just looked up mango trees and the leaves don't look quite right to what you've got in your picture,I also looked up paw paw and that wasn't right either so I'm stumped !,
