We moved to Central Florida (32162)last year and planted Robelinni& Queen Palms, mandevilla, hibiscus, bougainvillea,firecracker 3 small fruit trees and several herbs. In early February, we had three days of 30 degree weather. All plants show signs of stress and substantial leaf loss. Will they recover. We also have zoysia grass. Suggestions? Thanks

Your plants will all recover. Although you had some freezing weather, 3 days of cold should not kill the plants, only the tender foliage. You can prune off all the dead plant parts and you will see lots of healthy new growth appear within a few weeks. Best wishes with your garden!
