Yellow Leaves Due to Freeze


Anonymous added on March 9, 2011 | Answered

I have four sagos and they were doing very well, but this year we had a bad freeze and all of the leaves have turned yellow. What should I do as far as pruning?

I would wait until spring is fully here to cut back the plant to help protect the new growth, just in case another freeze occurs. You will need to remove the yellow and brown fronds in the spring, but only those, as they will not come back. Do not remove green fronds. These articles will help you as well:
