Can't see anything in the photo but sounds like aphids. Brush or hose them off with water, you don't need chemicals

does anyone know what I've done with my secateurs?

Through the shredder with the heap of sticks you put down on top of them?

That makes an obvious loud clatter though You'd have noticed that

What is this plant and what do I do now the stems are falling over?

The upright green bits that follow on from the flowers darken to brown/yellow, open up and it you tip them up the seeds fall out. They are ripe. You can either sow them straight away and the germinate quickly or keep them til about mid-winter and sow them and leave them in a cold place, (outside or cold greenhouse) No heat required. Or just let them seed themselves around the garden

I wonder if you have Phlomis russelliana, the herbaceous perennial rather than P. fruticosa a woody shrub

I don't recognize it from the photo. Can you post a few more? Does it flower at all? What sort of soil have you got and where are you?

Can you tell if it's spreadingby roots or seeding everywhere.

Disappeared?  It shouldn't do that.

Is this the shrubby one, Phlomis fruticosa? I haven't got any flowers either. I'm blaming the severe haircut it got last summer and hoping for some late flowers.

I'm expecting it to grow back Tetley. I'm hoping for some rain as I'm not into carrying buckets of water. It was collapsing outwards and bits were rotting and only a tree paeony, a viburnum and a sarcococca prevented it lying down completely

That's a splendid plant 

Do you think it's grown so fast it needs more food?
