Help please - we planted a 5ft Pittosporum in a 2ft 6" deep large pot last year. Dispite our best efforts and a lot of wrapping around the pot during the heavy frosts it looks as though the tree has suffered frost damage. The leaves have turned brown (apart from small pathches on the unterside and some have fallen off. The branches do not, at present snap if I bend them but I am worried about the tree surviving. What more, if anything, can we do?
Many thanks

Nothing at the moment. Wait till April, possibly even late April, depending on how cold the spring is - when you can see where new growth is coming from, prune as, and if, necessary then.
