I planted pansies in our front yard, as I do every fall. We have had a harsh winter with either very cold days or very warm days and many of the flowers and leaves look frost-bit or wilted. I read you can prune these back to the base and they will regrow. Is this correct or is there a better way to save my pansies since it is only March?

you can still trim them back and give a lil fertilizer and get a few more blooms.I can keep mine going till May& sometimes I can "over-summer" them under the edge of house where its cool till November and bring them back out.mine need cut back cause are longy& hang over the sides.

Thanks so much, I have noticed new growth now and I gave them a dose of miracle grow recently. I just hope our warm weather doesn't shock them, we seem to be heading from a mild winter to a warm summer and forgot about spring. Thanks!
