I have a couple of plants that have damage caused by the cold weather, do I trim them back to the healthy part of the stem? Thanks

Yes, I did that to my Plumeria the other winter, and it saved my plant. nodding Dab some cinnamon on the fresh cut end afterwards.

That is good advice. I would like to add that you should keep cutting (cleaning your knife between cuts) until you see clean white wood. The rot may be farther than you can see on the outside.
