Q.Tea Olive Hurt By Freeze
My tea olives have dropped all their leaves after an unusually cold freeze. Some stems are dead; some are flexible and show some sprouts. Any hope? Any suggestion for helping them?

Really, the only thing to be done is to trim off anything dead. You can tell the difference, easily, as living growth will bend. Dead growth will snap.
Other than this, you can expect your living growth to continue on. It may be a little unsightly, for awhile, but will make a recovery, likely.
