Recent Freeze #681479

Asked February 22, 2021, 6:00 PM EST

I’m really worried that all of my bushes and shrubs died because of the recent cold snap in DFW. Leaves are all brown and about to fall off. They typically don’t do that during the winters. Anything I can do to save them?

Please do not move too quickly on this.  Water your plants thoroughly and give them some space and time to recover.  You will be surprised how many come back.

I expect to receive much correspondence on this issue as we move into March.  In the meanwhile, the above article is very good at giving you advice on how to proceed. 

When you have specific issues with specific plants please send a picture with your questions.

thank you
