hi all

I have been asked a very good question and don't know the answer even though I see it happen every year.

After a night of hard frost Narcissus, Galanthus, Tulipa and many other winter and spring flowering plants collapse. As the weather warms up the flowers and leaves come back to life. Why does this happen?
