They looked really naff so this morning I dug them up, chucked out the old bits, cut down the tops, planted the best bits with the tuber on the surface, watered them in and spoke nicely to them.

Is it far too late in the year to do this or will they be OK?

I think it's unlikely to be the same thing eating all those plants. I'd have a look round and see what you can find on the leaves. If you can't find anything it's probably over for this year. The munching stage doesn't last very long in an insect's life

If they're perennials yes. Perennial is the important word. 

The ones that only last a year are called annuals

Other significant words are 'tender', that means they won't survive a winter in the UK climate and 'half-hardy' which means they might survive in coastal Cornwall
