Dealing with Freeze Damage to Plants
“There is no way of currently knowing the extent of the damage or whether your plants will survive or not. It will take weeks or months to know, if or when, they start to resprout and what part of the plant resprouts.”
Greg Grant, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service
County Extension Agent-Horticulture
In the past few weeks, the sounds of chainsaws buzzing away, and the sights of trailers filled to overflowing tells the story of our historically cold February. We do encourage you to be patient before removing any plants, as they may resprout in the upcoming weeks. Greg Grant with Texas AgriLife has detailed information on what to look for and what to do.
