Don't give up hope!

Just noticed new growth- though tiny- on my August Beauty gardenia....I was ready to shovel prune after the winter we had, but now I want to see how this turns out. What about your garden?

My gardenia looks mostly dead, but has a couple of green leaves poking out. The elephant ears seem to be mush, but I'll leave what's left for a while longer. Hope springs eternal.

RE: Don't give up hope!

Went to my house in Smiths Station today and found my weeping willow tree dead from the freezes. I am heart broken.

RE: Don't give up hope!

I have a little new growth at the base of gardenias I thought were dead as well. I will wait a little, then prune it back to the living parts.
