Yep, over 2 metres tall for me too Hosta and from divisions.  Mind you divisions are large.  Just divided a few more over past few days

Sorry Runny about your son.  Clearly everyone here is supporting you, your son and the family.  

Dog attacks seem to be a lot more prevalent now despite apparent tightening up of the law.  much stronger legislation needed.

The dreaded vine weevil!

Provado works for me.  The dilution rate is important.  Touch wood, vine weevil damage is less than used ....mixture of provado,,cleaning susceptible plants and dealing with the adult weevils

Poorly dwarf apple tree

Sounds like scab Zoomer.  Some varieties are more prone.  Perhaps being overgrown was the reason. i would use a fungicide,,keep tree well aired and open and watch out for signs next year

Poly, two options.

drench with Provado now. Or, dig up your polyamthus....polyanthus .....and thiroughly wash the roots and pot into fresh compost.

I often dig mine up about now if the polys fail the "pull" test, viz., a sharp tug.  i dig out the surrounding soil and spread the contents on a board or sheet of plastic for the birds to forage through
