Last year I had a lot of Fuchias growing in pots but I lost most of them due to the frost and snow ,I want to replace them as they are my favourite plant and could you advise me on which type and names of Fuchia to get to avoid losing them again if we get a bad winter.
About 10 branches all in a cluster roughly 10 foot each nearly all leaves have now fallen off (this is due to the cold snap from reading other questions) However new stems coming at base of each one. Should i cut the 10 big branches down to size now or just leave nature take its course?
My Jasmine grows in a pot in an outside unheated conservatory. I cut back my jasmine about a month ago and have fed it carefully. There is just brown stems and no new growth appearing. Do you think it will come back to life?
I have 2 Bottlebrush shrubs which were badly by the frost.Growth is not visible.Should I cut these out now .
I have noticed alot of yellow leaves on my Griselinia hedge and am worried that it may be dying. Trimmed and fed it (fish bone and blood) last week. Need I worry

We have a 25 year old Pittosporum, which is 25 to 30 feet high. It is a beautifully shaped tree, normally with dense foliage. Last year we cut and stripped some ivy which was getting quite heavy on the trunk. Since Spring, the foliage is getting thinner and thinner. The tree is currently flowering, small maroon flowers. Is it dying and if so did the winter frost cause the damage?
I have a mature myrtle shrub which does not appear to have growth up the branches. However there is a very slight growth at the base. What should I do to save it? Similarly my bottle brush has some little growth throughout a lot of dead looking branches. What should I do? My common type large pittisporum is shedding a lot of leaves. Will it live?
My Griselinia hedge has some yellow leaves. Need I worry?
my cistus plants have leaves only on the tips. The plants are approx 3 feet across. I would like to prune them hard back but should I wait??
We have two 30 yr old Cordylines (palm Trees) in our front garden (north facing). One is sheltered but the other one has taken the brunt of our bad winter, it has lost all leaves, and all side branches seems to be dead. A weird looking orange/pink sap oozed out from the bottom of main trunk, from about 4 foot from the base, but this has now stopped. Can this huge tree be saved, or do we cut it down.... (I really hope not).
My Griselinia hedge of 4 yrs is only now starting to go brown in spots (not noticeable unless your beside it). All others in our area have been gone almost 2 years since very bad frost. We have not had frost here in weeks. Is there anything I can do to save it? Should I cut out brown bits to stop spreading? Some else suggested I feed It? If so what feed do I give?
On a recent journey from Inishowen to Dublin I noticed that most of the whin/gorse (Ulex) along the roadside seem to have died. Would this have been caused by the severe winter or is there a disease on the rampage?
I'm wondering if my yellow barberry is dead. It has dropped its leaves and I see no sign of its yellow flowers this year. Could our -16c winter temps have killed it? My father wants to remove/ dump it, but should we give it another chance? Also, our clematis hasn't flowered either. Will it benefit from a cutting back to the roots or shall we just get rid of it?
