It is interesting to look back isn't it?  When my parents were farming they kept weather records - no idea where they are now ...

You obviously breed your vine weevils much bigger and tougher up north than we southern softies Bb

The leaf damage looks like the work of leaf cutter bees to me. 

The vine weevils would have to be enormous to take out chunks of leaf that size.

For anyone thinking of doing this, a good rule of thumb is - biggest bulbs at the bottom, smallest at the top

I'd cut them down when all the flowers have finished.  They'll grow back to the same height, or even taller, next spring/summer.

As the seed pods dry and begin to open you could save some to sow next spring - although you'll probably find lots of little self-sown ones popping up in the spring anyway.

As for the one you want to move, I think I'd move it just as it starts into growth in the spring.
