Pruning After a Freeze


Anonymous added on February 2, 2014 | Answered

We forgot to cover our sagos during a 20 degree night on our covered front porch. The next week I went out to water, the palms are crisp from the freeze. Do I cut them all off now or wait until new growth starts this summer, if the whole plant isn't dead? Thanks.

You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds or parts of fronds this spring but only those as they will not come back. Do not remove green parts of fronds.
