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.

In the spring

Everything appears to be ok out there.  A polythene tunnel....small homemade one....has been damaged so I need to get some more,polythene today.  Nothing much really

Right now it's blue sky, sunny, calm amd dry. I have a feeling that the bad weather will miss me here and that I will be able to get in a spot of sunbathing over the holidays.  

Of course, the masses will still  be buying, buying and buying.....again.
