I live on the side of a valley luckily, so all the water runs down it. Never seem to lose any plants to a wet Winter.
they didn't want my answers either
maybe the whole " flooding followed by drought" isn't such a problem after all?
I've just completed the survey - be interesting to see what happens next, it may still be that my garden doesn't fit the bill but I bet there are hundreds of gardens affected by drought/flooding.
Strange you say that, Hostafan, i have just found a book that was presented to OH at the start of the 1960's, book probably written before that and in it is a picture of field after field flooded, looks like the Somerset levels early on, they said the fields will flood due to very heavy rains we get in Feb, but dont worry, all the trees hedges and grass will be back as good as new by the summer.
Is ir really doom and disaster now or have we short memories?
There is a chappie where we used to live that was fanatical about measuring rainfall, has done it for donkeys years, he said it averages out every year.
Maybe its just the West Country, but apart from not so much snow, some years, its pretty much the same as always. We used to go to Plymouth Christmas shopping about this time and always just carried coats over our arms.
My answers weren't needed either
if my garden ends up underwater, then the whole of Devon is underwater
Hostafan thats what we always say, 960ft above!
I think they're just asking if we have noticed that some plants do better than others in flooded ground. I didn't see anything asking if I had a double-barrelled name.
