The roots of your flax may have survived the winter weather so unless you want to remove it completely from your garden, you can simply cut off the tops of the plant and allow new growth to emerge. Or, you may want to cut it down to ground level and dig and divide it into smaller portions. I'd vote for cutting down the damaged plant tops and waiting for new growth when the weather warms. Now's a good time to do it.
