    Assuming there are leaves lower down, you can cut back to them, but it may be worth waiting until you are sure there will be no more frosts.

    When the frost gets mine it’s usually the top leaf buds that cop it, if so you can wait a bit in case you get another frost, when it’s warmer just pick those top buds off.

    Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.
