I fail to get all mine cut back every year. It doesn't seem to make any difference apart from being able to see the scruffy old leaves. 

Helenium advice

Chiltern Seeds have heleniums, they're easy from seed but if you want those oranges and the shorter ones you need to buy plants you like and divide them.

I think you need to deal with the bramble first, nettles will seed for years, you can eliminate the plants you have but not the seeds. Nettle is easily dealt with by mowing. I have loads of nettles but none in mown grass. Ivy is capable of making long low growths below mower blade level so mowing doesn't do for that..


It's dig or chemical whichever way you choose but I wouldn't leave them, especially bramble

nothing eats my snowdrops and we have squirrels. Some have emerged but nothing much to see yet. Much later than last year, I had a few flowers out on NYD last year.

I think digging is all you can do. There are no plants that would eradicate bramble and ivy except worse invaders like horsetail and Japanese Knotweed. Bramble and Ivy are easy compared to them.
