a little advice please if you are so inclined.
we live in central florida and we had a brief cold snap recently.
we have a few Traveller palms and banana trees. The cold damaged them. i want to bring them back to full health of course. i may not be asking the "right" questions here so please feel free to expand the scope here as to how to bring them back.
should we water heavily, fertilize and so on? and what it the best way to trim them which will result in the least damage to the stalks?
the trunks of the banana trees and the leaves of the banana trees closest to the ground survived. the higher leaves are brown and green or totally brown. the stalks to which the dead leaves are attached are still green and look ok. where should i trim from? the trees are about 8 - 10 feet tall and they all have new growth coming in.
similar situation with the Traveller palms. these are 10-14 ft tall. Some of the leaves are totally brown and dead i fear. some are a mixture of brown and green. stalks look ok. and there is new growth coming in. where should i trim from? should i let the brown/green leaves alone of clip them?
