Q.Frost Bitten Mimosa – Pruning

Zone Nouvelle Aquitaine, France | Mia in France added on February 28, 2023 | Answered

I live in France and we have had some very cold overnight temps. A lot of my mimosa tree looks frost damaged, I know how to check for living wood and to prune back to here, but I don\\\’t know whether I should do it now (Still cold) or wait till late spring/early summer? Thank you
