      1st week of January saw first (and so far only) frosts of winter 20/21: couple of days with grass frost in morning and lasting all day in shade. -1°C air temperature overnight one night and 0°C for a couple of nights.

      Greenhouse air minimum of 8°C at that time but that's not very significant because seeds were germinating on a heated sand-tray maintained at 20°C and covered in fleece.

          Yeh, winter doesn't start until after Christmas and our last frost is usually around second week of March. It's not unusual not to have a frost at all over the winter.

          It can feel bitterly cold because we get strong wet winds.but the thermometer still says 4-5°C

          When I say frost I mean air at 2m <= 0°C We seldom get ground/grass frost because it's almost never calm enough.
