Is that really your experience Liam - it's certainly not mine!

What to do with rhubarb?

Yes, you can dig the ground over, spread the manure and then let the winter weather and the worms do their job.  But don't put it where you're going to plant root crops the following year - it makes them fork. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Lovely sunshine here now if a bit breezy.  I've been out watering pots and potting up some Sisyrinchium that arrived in the post   Shame I have to go to a meeting this afternoon - it's the sunniest it's been here for a few days.

The first looks like one of the annual bedding varieties of mimulus with loads of blooms!

The second looks like a heuchera.

Can anybody tell me what this is?

I agree Punkdoc -  Persicaria affinis I think - lots of different varieties - I like them but they need to be kept in their place.

Some general info here http://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/67494/Persicaria-affinis-Superba/Details 

New Hedge and Weeds

As well as agreeing with Fleurisa, I think they'd stop you weeding efficiently and if mounded up against the hedge saplings might cause rot to set in
