I have Pittosporum tenuifolium silver queen shrub about three feet high. Due to heavy snow it was bent over into the snow. We cleared the snow off and it seemed to straighten up quite well. Now a lot of the leaves have gone brown and then fallen off. Should I leave it till spring before cutting down or trimming the branches. We live in South Yorkshire and the weather has been very cold and still is.
I look forward to any comments.



Similar question a day or so ago. Leave it for now. In mid-spring, as growth starts, trim it over, removing the dead tips, and the new growth will very quickly come through, and it'll look completely amazing again. Worthy
