have very damp area in my garden, have tried hostas with no joy what can we plant next



If it's in shade as well, there are ferns which enjoy those conditions, or try Astilbe and Aruncus

If it's a sunny spot, you have lots of choice - Ligularia, Primula bulleyana, P. florindae, P. pulvurenta,Lythrum salicaria, Rodgersia, Darmera peltata, Iris laevigata, Iris pseudacorus, Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Crowborough', Mimulus cardinalis and Filipendula palmata or F. purpurea, just to give you a few examples.

I hope this helps.

it seams to me that your plants are geting dround , I feal a soakaway coming on. I think you should get some one to dig a deep hole there and through old broken bricks or rocks or stones or every thing you can get your hands on,in to the bottom then replace the soil, I am talking to a lady ,if not get your spade mate, after that grow what ever you want there MG even me a Welsh man know's it should be scot's never scottish
