Now all the snow has gone, my flower border is looking very sad, it contains lots euphorbia which has collapsed under the weight of the snow. Will these plants recover or will collapsed branches need pruning in Spring. The same has happened to a large phormium, will they straighten up themselves in time.



For the moment I'd leave the plants alone to see how they will recover. The weight of snow will have caused many plants to collapse. Wait and see what it all looks like in a couple of months time - you could be surprised at how well the plants recover.

most plants will recover,some collapsed branches may need surporting untill they wake in the spring,depending how big they are,but there is more snow forcast for wensday, so dont go rushing in with your first aid box yet. lol
