Default Re: Harvey's Frost Report - various plants

No, none of my citrus died at either 20F or 18F. AT 18F smaller branches were either killed or defoliated. No leaves were killed on my large navel orange trees at 20F but some leaves were killed or damaged (burned back, but not severe damage).

Our January 2007 Arctic blast gave us a few nights in the low 20s and at least a couple of days did not warm above freezing during the daytime. During that period my bananas died down to the corms (I only had 4 plants back then).
