Hi all, with the recent frosts at minus 11 in staffs my Pitosporran Evergreens have just shed 90% of their leaves. Tree is 7 feet high probably 6 years old, do you know if there is any chance of them recovering their foliage, Thanks.

On plant Pittosporum



Hi Carwasher. Unfortunately you won't really know until signs of growth in the spring. The chances are that the ends and upper parts of the shoots may have been damaged but hopefully (and they do) they will shoot from lower down. Once this new growth becomes obvious, prune any dead back to them.
