Q.Frozen Sedum and Crassula Plants

Anonymous added on February 6, 2014 | Answered

I have a sedum plant and crassula plant in containers outside my front door. The weather has been really cold and freezing, and I noticed on Sunday that both my plants had frozen entirely and the leaves and main body of the plant had drooped, looking like they had both died! I have now brought them inside and don’t know what to do with them. Do I leave them alone or cut back? Will they recover on their own and should I leave them inside until the weather improves? I live in North Wales and the temperatures overnight have been minus ten degrees Celsius. I completely forgot about them and just thought they would be okay, as I have read that they are very hardy. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I am sorry to hear about your plants. If the stems are still alive, they will regrow their leaves. I would check the stems and if they are still alive, care for the plant as you normally would and you should see leaves start to grow in a few weeks.
