Frost Havoc

I wasn't quick enough to cover certain plants etc in the recent very cold weather and some of the pots were too heavy to move. One such plant was my lovely Blue Agapanthus in a pot - do you think it will recover? Looks also I've lost the Ceanothis. The Tree Lilies are also looking very sorry for themselves. I suppose it will be a good excuse to visit a Garden Centre to buy replacements.

Don't write them off just yet. Wait until spring as they may well send out some shoots, and cut back any obviously dead wood then.

Fingers crossed.

We have lots of agapanthus in our garden, both blue and white, and they are looking lovely right now!!

They are very hardy and survive 40+degree heat (which we had a few days ago) and also some frost.
So I think you should be OK - as ES said, wait until Spring and good luck with them!!

Frost Havoc - Bolas

" I fleeced and moved next to the south facing wall of the house and even though they were frost hardy to -12c they died. "

Bolas - I'm just curious to know how you fleece a pot plant??
also what you can say about a souffle that makes the moderator remove the post?!!!

Now Gale Havoc

Two panes of glass have blown out in my greenhouse and my summer house has taken a battering - one of the apex wooden pieces has fallen off and the felt on the roof is lifting so had better get out there with hammer and nails....

Cordyline R.I.P.

Oh dear, Dottie May, your garden needs some TLC this spring - as does ours. Just as I was thinking the disasters might be over, yesterday I spotted my lovely cordyline in a bad way. The central spikes had all collapsed and the core was a mushy soggy mess. Just as well our favourite garden centre has an excellent coffee shop as we seem to be there every week!

Cordyline RIP

Same thing has happened to one of mine Elpe.....my garden is looking sad at the moment. Sorry about your favourite underpants Bolas - they are not on top of your chimney are they by any chance?

Frost havoc/underpants

That made me chuckle, thought I was unusual using my husbands old underpants(clean of course) for those cleaning jobs!! They are not his favourite ones though.!

I did lose a lot of plants hardy perenialls including several hebes, so have cut them all back and hope fot the best, will wait and see what happens before I dig them up, give them a wee chance to recover

Very depressing in the garden at the moment after such a God awful Winter.
Don't intend to dig anything up just yet though.

The only plus being OH has agreed the shed is now beyond repair - have ordered a new, larger model. Can't wait ! Shows how very sad I am to get excited over a shed.

don't dig them up

you're right to leave them - leave everything be and see what happens - i was amazed last year (first year here) to see what can survive the winter...

if my roses can deal with some -30 nights (and some days for that matter) i imagine some of your plants will spring back to life

-30!!! Feel shivery at the thought. Do you feel you've 'adapted' to the climate over there - if that's possible!!

I still hate the extreme heat we get here - but so do the locals!! This summer has been very mild with only a couple of +40 days - so no complaints this year.
