Snapdragons Damaged In The Cold

Q: My snapdragons look really damaged from cold. Do you think they will come back? Is there anything I can do to help them survive? 

A: I have seen snapdragons suffer a beating from winter cold and still look very nice in April. Gently finger-squeeze the stems of your plants. If they are firm, the snapdragons may recover. If the stems are mushy, the plant is dead. But if they are goners, there’s still plenty of time to replace them with pansies for winter color.
