One pittosporum in a hedge is dying

Hi, Hoping anyone can help with suggestions. I have one pittosporum out of a hedge of 9 that is dying. The rest are perfect. I live in Sydney and it has been pretty hot here including a few over 40degree days. The only other thing we have done lately is to put sugarcane mulch on the garden bed. This is our first house and so we are learning. Your help would be appreciated, it may be too late but I am willing to try anything. Thank you

Lemon Cypress outdoors in winter

I have 2 small lemon cypress plants that I would like to keep on our covered porch throughout the winter in Washington DC. They are in their own pot which is then sitting in an iron urn. I take them out to water. I know they need some warmth on very cold nights. Can I cover with a plastic or paper bag on those nights? Or should I wrap the pot itself that contains the roots. Which part of the plant freezes first, the root ball or the leaves? Will a bag be enough? Thanks!
