Q.My holly bush was frost bitten what should I do?
The other night it we got frost and the new growth of my holly bush has turned brown. Should I cut the tips off or leave it alone? It looks like just the new growth has been affected.

Yes, new growth is much more cold tender than mature growth as it has not had time to toughen up. If it is brown and the stems are brittle, then you can remove it. If the stems are still pliable, I would leave it as it may still regrow leaves.
