Default Re: Harvey's Frost Report - various plants

This lemon is next to my house but lemons are fairly common around here and are ofen in yards 20 feet or even 50 feet from structures. I think we mostly have Lisbon and Eureka lemons but also have some Meyer lemons (too sweet for some uses, IMO). In January 2007 we got down to 20.4F and my lemon tree did get burned back some but not severely. I think there was worse damage maybe about 10 years ago though I don't think we actually got colder. In 1990 there was a worse freeze and more damage was done then (maybe down to 18F, if I recall correctly). When I bought this farm in 1994 I trimmed off some dead branches that had remained since that freeze.
