Well the frost has finally finished off the Sweet Peas, though a few flowers were still hanging on. 
I have cut them down and saved most of the ripe seeds for next spring, I have sown some now in the greenhouse as I believe this can result in earlier flowers, we will see. 
I read recently that if you leave in the roots the break down providing much needed nutrients, saves digging so worth a try.
Alice gave me a Rhubarb root, I know its a good one as I gave her the original, this now has its own dedicated place in the border, away from the Arum Lilies, last season they went mad with all the rain, choking the Rhubarb. I know it odd putting it in a border but space is rather short, it worked very well until last year.
