Answer: Sorry to hear about your cold snap! Treat the tree with care, making sure it does not suffer from drought or other environmental stress, and you may be able to rejuvenate it from the suckers that have sprouted. However, if it was a grafted tree, the suckers may be from the rootstock and not the variety you purchased, so in that case, it may be better to start all over with a new tree. Some mild fertilizer, such as dilute seaweed/fish emulsion may help get the new growth going. If no more buds form and grow within 4-6 weeks, you can prune back the dead wood.
