Standard Bay Trees With Cold Damage

Anonymous added on April 3, 2011 | Answered

I have two standard bay trees that are in pots against a wall. The recent cold weather seems to have killed the leaves, which are brown and dry. Have I lost them, or is there anything I can do to save them? I have had them a year.
