Best plants for covering unsightly ledge

It looks as though the builder is shooting water onto the neighbouring (your) side rather than dealing with it on the correct side. He has done it to stop water causing damp in the new extension. There should be a proper damp-proof course in there somewhere, and I don't think there is. Neighbourly relations be damned, this will cause problems in the future when/if you want to sell your house.

Have you tried pouring boiling water from a kettle on the cracks?

Make sure it never sees the sun; they don't like it.  Steamy bathroom is where they like to be.

You can only spare roots for forcing rhubarb when you have a good amount of roots as it is usual to throw spent roots away after forcing.

Do you water it frequently with soft water?  Rain water is soft , maybe your tap water isn't.

One thing:  lily plants hate disturbed water, so no fountains or suchlike.  Someone may have mentioned it up-thread; if so I apologize.

Sadly that looks as though it has flowered this year.  Give it lots of TLC and it will flower for you next year.  First thing - pot it up.
