Ranunculus ficaria 'Brazen Hussy' (Ranunculus ficaria 'Brazen Hussy')

Just as prolific a seeder as the green-leaved form. It was discovered in local woodland by the late Christopher Lloyd of Great Dixter

HI ANDREW ,GREAT PIC BUT I WAS JUST WONDERING THE DEAD LEAVES AROIUND THE GAREN ,IS IT BEST TO RAKE THEM UP OR JUST LEAVE IN THE BORDERS TO ACT AS A MULCH ,I SUPPOSE WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS WHY RAKE THEM UP TO ROT THEM DOWN AND THEN SPRAD THEM ON YOURE BORDERS AGAIN,WHAT YOU THINK??.

I'd say take the leaves off - for three reasons.
Firstly, if left in situ they will take nitrogen form the soil as they rot down, depriving the plants of it.
Secondly, all sorts of 'nasties' will hide under the leaves (slugs for example)
Thirdly, wet leaves against stems will cause rots to set in
