We had an early spring and the hydrangea bushes started to get leaves. However, we did have one night of very cold temperatures and the leaves at the end of the stems are brown. There is new green growth at the base of the bush. Should I prune the branches down to the new green growth, or leave them as they are?

You can trim off the brown parts but it may be best to wait a little while to make sure there are no more cold snaps. This article may also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm
