Q.Saving a plant after a freeze

Zone Mesquite, TX | cstarks added on December 13, 2017 | Answered

My Crown of Thorns got zapped by a freeze we had. It is a 4 foot tall plant. One short section made it fine, the rest of the leaves are droopy and look bad. How should I nurse it back to life?

The only thing you can do is let those leaves fall off, and bring it in to recover on its own. If ,after a few months, it starts to put out growth again, you may give it some fertilizer to help it come back. You don't want to do this until you know it is on its way to recovery, though.
