Thanks del12

Thats exactly my view too.  It doesn't matter if  its a "notifiable" weed technically or not  or whatever legal jargon is used or whatever the law may say or not.....this plant is horrendous. It is not easily eradicated and it is the worst possible thug in the plant world.

Yes,  keep them intact.  Half bury a label with them too.  Split when you have developed a decent size clump

Hiya deb

How about putting in a pond again? ,work with the conditions. 

Plants for damp soil in shade abound.  Again, working with your comditions, you could make your garden look stunning.  Lots of good plants will enjoy it there

Is it really waterlogged because of recent heavy rains?  What is the ground like usually?   Check to see how quickly the water drains away.
