planted in an open border. Relatively new plant and have noticed that there are semi circular notches that have been nibbled off some of the leaves - no holes in the middle.

Does this sound like vine weevil damage?

A picture would be useful although your description does sound excactly like the damage I would expect to see if the vine weevil beetle had been at your plant.
The female beetle dies after she has laid her eggs - the developing larvae will have been feeding themselves on the roots during winter.

Hope this helps.
