shear off Nemesia, flax and snap completely, they will grow back again with a second flush with a lesser height and size of bloom.
For taller plants try to erect them with the help of mud around the base carefully, be gentle, after rain plants are very brittle and easily break up.
For lanky shapes you will have to live with.....
avoid watering deeply to avoid rotting, however do give light sprinkling with next sun, to wash off the plants as well as to acclimatize them with high UV.

Survival is the name of the game.
What cant be cured must be endured, my 15 year old rose bush has snapped from the main trunk, the majestic Snap Dragons have been humbled the dwarfs are smiling, it is the day for staking.

Veru bad condition. Flower beds and pots are fully sunk.Seedlings of antrhinium and many bulbulous plants are in danger. Overall condition of garden is critical.

Total destruction in Pindi and Islamabad as well :(

Saved the novelty plants by placing containers under shade away from rains.

Its happens some time we can,t stop mother nature when she is cruel towards garden. But don,t loose heart. Just cut down you Nemesia & tall Snaps & they will come again into second flash of flowers.Don,t worry every thing will be alright.
