Garden bah

I'm not sure what wisteria blossom is hardy to, but last night's temperature (which also froze the surface of the duck pond) was evidently below it.

(The weather station, annoyingly, is broken. We must get that sorted out.)

We were looking forward to a lovely display this year, as there were masses of buds just breaking. There are two left now, both ones that were tucked up against the wall.

One of the grape vines has also lost a few leaves, and I'm a bit worried by my new, native to Siberia and hardy to -34C, kiwi plant, which is looking rather droopy and a bit blackened in places. Even the budlia is looking a bit sad and droopy, but I'm sure that will perk up later.

We had a frost Tuesday night, and I covered my seedlings with a blanket, but it was warmer last night, and no damage was sustained. I suspect your frost pocket valley strikes again, as I saw happy Wisteria in 3 different gardens yesterday

It's been chilly here, but that sounds extreme - poor wisteria. :(

The "native to Siberia and hardy to -34C, kiwi plant". Not sure what that'd actually be, 'kiwifruit' being renamed Chinese gooseberries. But if they're related, it's usual to have a male and female plant so you get fruit from them. So one may not be enough, though perhaps they can be grafted together.
