The landscape, that is! All frozen over, brown and crunchy. That includes my yard! We are told not to cut things back as it encourages new growth. There is another freeze forecast for Feb 3rd. That would hurt any new growth. But it's hard to lace it alone. They are cutting stuff back downtown.
If things are rotting, that part needs to go because it will travel down and rot even more of the plant....just do not cut all the way down into the unharmed portion, that way, whatever is left will help protect the part that is still alive, when we have another freeze.
