Is there any better foliage ?

You will find space for these joyce 

never grown rodgersias PD simply because my soil is prob not heavy enough.  Have checked out varieties though and been tempted.  But.....if I can grow astilbes I guess Rodgersias will do well too....hmmm!  Maybe I will 

Two questions

no, let those shoots grow for now

sarcoccoca is a wonderful winter shrub.....scent is superb.  Easy dark evergreen that I grow as a sort of topiary...i.e. As a dome.  

How about helleborus Corsicus too?  Pale green serrated leaves, evergreen with pale green flowers late winter and spring?

Sorry LP.  It is new to me.  Will be a shock to you all there.  Wish you well. 

Is it manageable?  treatable?

Bloody dandelions

Dandelions do not "stay in their place".  They seed everywhere offen in the most difficult places.  

I have a delightful "dandelion" in my border...actually a couple.  Doronicum in fact.  Well behaved, long flowering and deserving a place here.

if you love dandelions then grow them but the question derekp posed was " how to get rid of them"?

We should leave Monty alone many threads have there been about him?  one minute he is hated the next his health is of concern and the next he is the most popular guy in the world.  Not easy to cope with such personal intrusion.  How would you like it?

for me he does a good job and is a good guy presenting a prog about my hobby. I don't probe into his life
