Plants growing through mulch

establised plants will come through but small newly planted will struggle.  Perhaps your plants were trodden on when mulch was applied.  I try to mark herbaceous plants with canes but still manage to get my size 11's where I don't want them.

try to establish where your brunnera is and clear mulch away

Is it just me?
