death of established plants after this harsh winter, how long should I wait to see if it has really died, or just still in shock, Pittisporum Tom thumb, Myrtle just two which are looking decidedly brown.



I'd wait until June, as some things can take a while to initiate new buds. However you can trim off any ugly bits if they look too bad. Or pick off brown leaves.
