The frost hit it and the outer half of a lot of the branches are brown,a few are all brown. Should I trim off all the brown and leave a half of a branch here and there or leave it alone. Is there a fertilizer I should but for it? Thanks Bob

Fig palms do not need to be routinely fertilized so don't feed yours unless the foliage is yellowing. You can prune off any winter kill and your palm will respond with healthy new growth. Good luck with your fig palm!
