    Frost for me too this morning. Lowest temperature was 1.3C. Only an air frost and it didn’t touch the dahlias but they look a bit sad after the storm on Wednesday night.

      No frost here, although it did get rather chilly last night (I think it went down to 5, or even 4c).
      All my tender crops are unharmed, though, so there couldn't have been a frost.

        No frost here yet,getting my plants in position ready for it. Just need to bubble wrap them (peach tree & geraniums).

          Frosts might be coming tonight (and every night for the next four nights), so I've covered up all my tender crops. The temperature should stay above 0, so hopefully they'll be okay.

            We're moving into proper frost season now. Not just the odd one but every night. Sadly, it's been so warm recently during the daytime that lots of creatures - even the trees - think it's spring. The wasps have started emerging. Hope there are plenty left for next year to keep the caterpillar population down.
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              No frost last night in the end, but it's meant to go down to 2 tonight, so I imagine there will be one tonight.

                2C forecast here tonight too ameno.
                Glad I don’t have to go out anywhere in the morning.

                  We've got lows of 2, 3 and 4c for the rest of the week
                  ​​so a frost at some point.

                    I went out at 6am this morning to check on my garden, and there was definitely a light frost. A lot of the patio plants had ice on the leaves, too.
                    I think I've somehow discovered frost-resistant pepper plants, though, as they definitely had ice on a good half of the leaves this morning, but you'd never know it to look at them now. They look absolutely fine.

                              Another light frost here last night, and yet again the pepper plants are mysteriously unharmed.
                              Haven't checked the stuff at the allotment yet. I'll do that tomorrow.
                              The night temperatures are rising here now, so it looks like we won't get any more frosts for a while.

                                I don't know what the temperature went down to but we definitely had a frost at 5am. The car roof was white over.
