I don't think those are vine weevil eggs as they are laid in the soil.  They look more like caterpillar eggs.  You can get a treatment for vine weevil that you water the pots with, it's active against the larva.  There are several brands available so you now have an excuse to visit the garden centre

Sounds like Clarington's bosses are heading for a whole heap of issues.  There are rules about making people redundant and I don't think their approach is following any of them.

Suggestions please - shrubs for shade!

Looks like powdery mildew.  Can be caused by humid conditions or dry soil.  You could spray with a fungicide

Help needed identifying these seedlings.

It could be just a bit too early for loads of flower buds.  My dahlias are only just beginning to show may buds and I'm in the south of England. Stop pinching them out as the buds appear at the end of the branch so you may be removing them. I would just keep watering them, plants are normally very determined to flower.

It has the potential to take over spreading by runners and roots.  I'm trying to clear a bed of it at the moment

The first two are Leaf Miner damage, loads of different types. According to the RHS there is no chemical control available.  The Hebe looks as if its been eaten probably by slugs and snails.

ID please
