Thanks for the advice. I feared I may need to get the ground prepared. I'm not on a flood plain, but yes it can be quite damp in the summer too. The garden does face north east so gets some sun in the morning and before noon (when we have some!)The recent warm, dry weather firmed and dried the very top layer - even to the point it appeared cracked, but go just a few millimetres down and the ground was still damp. I think I will need to get someone to come and check it out for me as the current rain has turned it into a muddy 'filed' again. Many thanks again.
