    Gone a bit quiet here since 'Beast from the East 2' hit.

    It killed all my early Rhubarb leaves.

      Had a good look round over the past day or so and my young rhubarb leaves are fine. The recent cold snap was not as cold as the cold snap in 2018, back then Salvia guaranitica and S involuctra were cut back to ground level and the Zanthophylum was defoliated; this time all three still have leaves. The worst damage was done before the cold spell by some freezing fog one weekend.
      Overall things are still early; I'm putting this down to the generally mild autumn.
