Definitely the high heels,👡  haven't I told him several times? 😀😀. When you get to a certain age, you have to go flatter. 👞

Suggestions to replace Lobelia

Cut them down to about three inches from the pot, feed with Tomorite or similar and keep well watered, you should get another flush of flowers.

I lay them in dish on the window sill or radiator in the winter, then open and discard the bag. We get our compost made very quickly and the bags don't rot down in that short time, quicker, in the long run to undress them first. 

Help needed please with laurel hedge issues...

I don't think it's a problem either, as the plants grow and get strong, they resist problems,  pick of the unsightly leaves, but only if you really can't stand them, let the plants get bigger, they probably won't have anything wrong with them next year. You will need to thin them out though,  the trunks, in three years time will be almost touching. 

Winter time, most of their problems will go, I'm not so sure it's vine weevil.

As I found out Philippa 😀 Mind you, the flowers are stunning every year despite a really hard chop every Spring.  (Or probably because of)

It's a Clematis, I don't know which one, there are several very similar. Someone else may have the very one and let you know.

That's correct, chop it down, there's no point in having one long weak stem, if you cut it off it will thicken out from the bottom next year. 

If it were mine I'd do now, give the roots system time to strengthen before winter.

Looks like my Frosted Explosion Grass, if it is, you can save the seeds if you still have some in the ground.  Or buy seeds for it.
