We all want something different from our gardens. I want to share mine with the birds and the bees,(and the rest), so leave things to help them over winter. I have little interest in latest cultivars and exotics which may not cope with this.

Grow Aquilegia viridiflora Gg. It doesn't survive long for me but creates some great hybrids with the standard A. vulgaris and those yellow/red species, A.canadensis in particular

I think it's down to preference and attitude and what you're growing Karen. The worms take in the leaves eventually. I don't remove them from my garden, I do remove them from grass. If I grew alpines  I would remove them from those
