Repairing shed trimmings

I need to replace the trimmings on my shed, it’s rotten. Not sure what I can use, pl can somebody advise. See photo. It’s the back trimming that’s rotten, the front is ok.

    Not sure what you mean by "trimmings" - is it the "fascia board" type thing, for want of a better description?  If so then it's easy enough to remove the old one, replace with a new bit of wood and re-felt/repaint if necessary.  Apologies if I've misunderstood.

    I think it's the planks that hold the edges of felt. It has to be treated timber, not just wood.
    At some merchants you can buy treated timber laths, but I'm not sure whether BnQ/Wickes sell them.
    If so, thicker roof battens or fence capping rail can be used instead Forest Garden 1.83m Fence & Trellis Capping Rail

    funnily enough I need to do the same. It's amazing how important they are at keeping the rain out. Needs to be treated wood, but you can do this yourself;
