Part of the fun of gardening is that it's never 'once and for all' 

Though sometimes I wish just a little bit of it stayed done

I only have Molly the Witch and nothing has attacked her yet. Rabbits are having a good feast on other things though.

We've never asked what sort of paeony

I think you'll have to wait and see. Herbaceous paeonies  put up the leaves, then flower and no follow-up leaves.

Keep your fingers crossed and try to find the culprit as aym suggests

except for the pollinating bit Tetley, I need berries on the female, or my birds do anyway. Might still have to get one though.

Everyone has their own skill Logan, we always do our own tree surgery

I think you can cut it where you like and it will grow again, but I don't have experience of the cut leaf variety. Re cutting to the ground, is it a grafted tree? You don't want to lose the cut leaves by going below a graft

Don't shitakes grow on wood? 

You can buy growing kits on line, not sure about spores alone.
