I cant see any eggs. Is it a poppy. It looks like something has nibbled and the poppy has exuded sap which has then gone black. I would leave them alone. If they've finished flowering you could remove them.
Callistemon probably citrinus which is fairly hardy here. also known as the bottle brush plant for obvious reasons.
It comes from Australia, Hebes come from New Zealand.
Rozanne should flower all summer. If it gets tatty, cut it back hard, feed and water, and then it will send up new shoots.
New growth can be cut back now. If you want to cut back hard into old wood,wait until October,November,or December.
Rhs has good advice on pruning for fruit.
The plugs are tiny, will need growing on in small pots, then you could plant out in autumn and cloche them against the worst of the winter.
That's exactly what my OH said

It's not recommended because of rose sickness. Dig a really big hole for the new plant and replace the soil with some that has not had roses in, such as veg plot. You could also add some mycorrhizal powder on the roots to help the new rose establish.
