We're all very happy that those below freezing temperatures earlier this week are gone, but some local gardeners may be finding freeze damage to their gardens.

Joining the Eyewitness Morning News from the LSU Ag Center is Horticulturist Andrew Lloyd, to answer your questions on how to care for your damaged plants.

Some of those questions include:

KIM - The leaves of my elephant ears were damaged during the cold because I forgot to cover them. Are they salvageable? The stems still seem to be ok but the leaves are limpy and dead.

GISELE - I've lost my hibiscus. Should I cut them down so they can grow back?

KERRY - How cold hardy are hydrangeas?

KATHLEEN - Four o'clocks? Any chance for a return after the freeze? Looking quite sad and I'm tempted to cut back.
