How is best to plant bulbs eg gladioli,ixia, iris-clumping or can they be dotted around a rockery?

What level do you cut back acanthus?ground level or higher?

Re bulbs: It is a matter of personal preference. I prefer mixing mine, but others might prefer to clump varieties.

I should think that removal of spent flower stems and leaves would be all that would be needed. Remember that snails love them so you may have to keep a lookout for them.
