Gunnera manicata - maintenance. (No replies)

I live in the north east of England and am going to try and grow the above plant in the garden.

I have read on a few sites that the leaves need to be cut back and the crown covered with straw mulch.

My questions are: - Do I cut all the leaves off?  Do I pile the mulch over the whole crown? How thick should the mulch be?

Thank you for any help you can give me with this.
