I've had a few of those little grubs on the tips of my rosemary - I think I've found them all and nipped them out - google reveals that the larvae of the Rosemary Beetle is striped like the adults, so I don't think it's them, thank goodness 

What do I grow?

Plants often succumb to powdery mildew if they're a bit stressed and particularly if they're dry at the roots - don't give up on 3 year old apple trees - I'm sure the problem can be sorted!

Seems reasonable  choice to me - although I do like Bath - could recommend a very nice little French-style restaurant for lunch, very reasonable too given Bath prices - serve good escargots
