    As already noted in several replies the DPC has been compromised for several reasons. The side walls of the flower bed are mated to the main structure and will allow damp to rise up the side walls of the flower bed above the level of the DPC and go sideways into the structure walls. The Polythene introduced stops at the ends on the internal face of the flower bed and water will just go around it again into the face of the wall on the main structure above and below the DPC. The bed should be separated from the building with an air Gap between if you want to keep the flower bed. Only other option would be to build a back wall to the flower bed with a vertical DPC between it and the structure but this needs to come a few mm past the side walls external face and go down to foundation level with the back wall built on top of it. The best way to dry your wall out will be with a Dehumidifier assuming you can close all doors and windows when it is in use and it will suck all the moisture out of the wall.
