The battle to save my Laurels

I'm very much a newbie at gardening but really enjoying it and getting lots of useful advice (, on it from people on here, so thanks!

The other day, I noticed that many of my Laurels seem to have what look like bite marks in their leaves. It's understandable that if they're malnourished - which they very like are at the moment, but I was wondering if there's anything I can do (apart from feeding and lots of watering) to get rid of the pests that are causing this?

Thanks in advance for all the help

    Vine weevil by the looks of it.  Nematodes can be used on the soil beneath, once the weather conditions are right.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Great, thanks Bob!
