Subject:  New leaves browning on edges

My 1307 Holub seedling (plant) got attacked by birds last week and the large leaves are all ripped. I am just concerned about the new growth, as some of the buds are turning dark brown around the edges of the leaves. It has been cold, windy, raining and the plant got attacked by birds. What has caused this?? Will the plant rot? Can the secondary vine buds be saved?

Sorry for all the questions, I am just really concerned.

I will upload a picture soon.

Cheers and God bless,

You have not provided enough information. What is your soil temp? Have you sprayed anything? Is it UV Burn which happens when you have long periods of shade then exposure to direct sunlight

I think the plant is recovering now, as the temperature is coming up again and the sun is shining. Sorry Linus, It was hard to get a good look. The buds that were turning brown are growning fine now. I think it was the soil temp and rain?
