Whats gone wrong with my Rhododendron?

Hello Okmate, I think that's snail damage. ,looks like vine weevils had a go too last autumn on your choisya.

my neighbour has lawn treatment experts twice a year and it consists of moss killer, weedkiller and feed.

Hey Edd,  nice to see you.    

Alex any brand but there are well known ones stocked everywhere but I dont like to spray feed when flowering. do this after flowering
