Rosie, what is that stuff that looks like dead hair in the background, is it some kind of dead hedge?
My heart bleeds for people in this situation.
I imagine that they are being advised to dig in horse manure to re-populate the soil with the 'little critters' that make the soil productive and living. A lot of those micro-organisms will have drowned I think.
Today, potted up loads of self seeded things from the flower bed like Lychnis Coronaria Alba and an orange Papaver. These won't need much cosseting as they are already hardy (thank heavens as will soon run out of space undercover to nurture seedlings).
Hope you have a good week
