Potato scab.

Better started in seed trays Jason, and a bit of something to refresh the soil is always useful, but not too much.

Newly planted trees need water and lots of it. A soak with 2 gallons twice a week especially in the warm weather we're having should be about right. It's obviously stressed, so mulch it as well. Hopefully it'll recover when it starts to establish.

I'd please

Don't recognise it as a weed Chrissy, has a look of Chrysanthemum to it, and it does ring bells, but can't remember for the life of me what it is.

Old mole runs now used by mice sounds the most likely explanation. Dig them out and fill with new soil. Rats can take over old mole runs as well, but the holes would be slightly bigger and your dog would be more than interested. Leave the channels slightly raised to allow for settlement.

Hebe bushes

Hebe's can do this Tilly for no apparent reason, fickle plants as far as I'm concerned and not something I grow. I come cross a lot of it in different gardens, die back for no obvious reason, some come back after hard pruning, others just give up the ghost despite ideal growing conditions. I'd plant something else.

Leeks, salad crops, carrots brassica's can be sown and planted soon as well.

Honeysuckle looking poorly

I'd a bag of farm yard manure and put it in that spot you mention, shaded roots are important and a damp soil, and it'll train against a wall. They do well in sun or shade.

Slugs, again

Nematodes will die off after they eaten the available food source, they don't get into your veg, they're soil bourne, and stay there.
