the red top's of my pieris have turned brown the other week, was it the frost and should I cut them off ? JK



Yes it would have been frost but I would not cut them off. In a week or twos time it will get warm and sunny again (?????) the brown tops will go brittle and you can then just rub them off. Better luck next year.

I agree with Bulba..just leave them..mine are the same..In the first instance it is the frost,but if they get early morning sun,while they are still wet,that does most a shaded place the frost would just melt and dry naturally..not a lot we can do really,
