My plant is about 5 ft. high but during the frosts we had in May it looks very brown and hasn't flowered at all this year. I was so excited to see recently that tiny green leaves are sprouting towards the ends of the branches so it looks as if it is still alive. Help wanted - should I prune back all the branches nearer to the main trunk, cutting off the new leaves, or leave it as it is?

I would leave it personally.
Mine has been a picture but then I'm further South !
When it begins to put on leaf I find it invariably is on the tips and then it sort of works backwards !
Assume you have fed it so why not wait awhile and see ? You can always trim back later in the season.

Many thanks Sandra. I haven't fed it so will do so. I tend to use Tomato feed for nearly everything - will this be ok? Every other year it has been a picture so fingers crossed, it will survive.

Fine, its high in Nitogen so will promote leaf growth.
