 Dear All, It may be of minor interest, but I cannot resist to  share the following experience with you: Now that we are back  again to normal temperatures,  it is interesting to note which species have suffered  leaf damage, after one week of snow  with temperatures varying from 0 to -3°C (32- 25°F) The leaves of the followwing species were serverely damaged: Chasmanthe( but will surely flower this sping), Nerine sarniense(even the bulbs  suffer), Amarcrinum, Crinum Moorei, Dahlia imperialis Only slight damage: Agapanthes praecox orientalis, Amaryllis belladonna,  Nerine bowdenii 'Pink Triumf' (Haemanthus, Ferraria, Lachenalia etc   had protection with acryl tissue and were not damaged)

 Kind regards
