To be honest the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Dig it in or spread it. You can hoe off the weeds and your plants will love you.

Foxes are omnivorous. They'll eat anything.

Geranium cuttings

I only water them once and from underneath when taking the cutting. I let the compost get dry before even considering any more watering. Me thinks you are over watering and probably watering from above. They root within a few weeks so watering shouldn't be an issue. I have seen them root in less and from compost straight from the bag and unwatered.

I just put them in paper bags in the shed. They come back every year no special treatment.

Really depends on the drainage of your lawn. If it's badly drained then twice a year or more is best. If it's well drained then once a year should suffice.

Think I'd plump for alliums leaf miner with subsequent fungal infection.

Camellia

If you can find a side shoot rather than a leading stem then you can take them now as you would for a semi ripe cutting. Not difficult to do. If you look at the RHS website and look up semi ripe cuttings it's very easy to do.

I'd go with the wood chip and despite what Verdun says root grow won't hurt.

The Supernatural

As an ex policeman I have never believed in this subject. Much of what people experience is usually a result of an over active imagination. Even when people experience real events their recall of those events is never accurate and an event witnessed by multiple people will result in a number of differing accounts of the same event. I am however open minded as there is more on this planet we don't fully understand than that we do. So I am neutral on this. I do find some of the TV programmes hilarious however.

Planting camellias in November

It's still relatively warm. Forecast for the longer term say's it won't get too cold for another month or so so I'd get them in the ground asap. Give it a good mulch over the planting hole at least 4 inches. It should settle fairly well. If you can protect from frost as much as possible over winter that will help.
