The clocks now say it’s summertime, the forecast is good for the foreseeable future and I had enough energy after a week’s illness to be able to unwrap the citrus. We’ve had disastrous snow, hail and freezing temperatures going as low as -10℃ on more than one occasion. I’d been careful to wrap up my citruses in hessian, but it wasn’t enough. They needed fur coats and snowboots.
So, for the moment, I’m just going to see how the citruses fare. I shall prune back by about a third and feed them well. I’m hoping that, with a bit of TLC, I’ll be able to resurrect the majority of them.
