recovering my strelitzia after frost damage

United Kingdom Gb

I had my strelitzia in an unheated greenhouse over winter, but the frost was both hard and prolonged and has damaged all of the leaf's and the flower that was coming. what is the best way to recover the plant please?



You'll have to hope that it's not completely dead. Cut off any dead leaves and water carefully when it gets dry. Hopefully some spring sunshine will perk it up. Next winter try to keep it on the dry side as plants can survive cold better if they are drier. Good luck.
