Well, here's what happens when the temperatures drop in the spring. The most sensitive are young plants such as Flava Dorchester county below the picture.
Unfortunately in the past few days the temperature dropped to 4 - 6C evening here in Bulgaria. During the day they are around 15-16C these days where I live but evening was pretty cool. Probably quite a big difference for a short period to obtain. In the past few weeks temperatures reach over 28 - 29C during the day and night they were not lower than 12 -14C . However, this confused my young plants and some of them didn't pass the low temperature now, although they are protected in greenhouse. Anyway, I noticed that one of my plants the new peaks are blackened and dry. They grew quite normally until a few days ago and I had not paid attention before. So be careful guys...

Sorry to see that.

Look on the bright side, you still have lots of beautiful plants to see in the background, and that should cheer you up, at least a bit. :)

I totally hear what you are saying dimitar. Even here on the Pacific west coast of Canada, Spring has definitely been a tease. During this time of year it should be a cake walk in acclimatizing our plants, but all of a sudden I'm getting temperatures in the 0-4 degrees celcius to a highs of 9-12 degrees celcius with the odd day or two a bit higher. I'm taking advantage of those days in putting all my plants out for full acclimatization, but as for the rest of the time - thank goodness I have my mini greenhouse as a staging area. There are mornings where my car is covered in frost before heading off to work and just yesterday we had partial snow mixed with rain for a short period in the afternoon :shock:. I guess we are not out of the woods from Spri-nter just yet and it looks to me that my plants will not show the robustness as I was expecting by mid May until maybe late May to mid June due to the cold temperatures slowing the growth a tad. So in echo to dimitar's final words...becareful guys.

I understand your situation, just as Gothic said ! (I live in Canada as well).

According to the pic though, your plant seems well alive. It's gonna recover fine :)
