Help, just bought a potted Hydrangea to plant out, got caught by a frost last week,and some of the leaves have gone brown and Black,what do we do with them, cut them off leave until new growth!!! Thank you.

    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.

    Just to add to this,took some of the advice above,covered when further frosts came, plant now very green and doing well.
