Thanks for clarifying.  Since you are "oop north", I wanted to be sure which scale to be looking at!  :lol:

Here, we usually do get -4 C a few times each winter.  Very rarely as cold as -13 or -14 C.  I grew up in Indiana, up there -25 C was not uncommon, sometimes colder too!
Gardening is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

Posted elsewhere, but I will re-post a link on general winter-kill temperatures here:

https://www.google.com/url?q=https://www.sustainablemarketfarming.com/2016/11/01/winter-kill-temperatures-of-winter-hardy-vegetables-2016/&sa=U&ved=2ahUKEwjZnprYh6j7AhWjHEQIHcb5AZoQFnoECAgQAg&usg=AOvVaw3ve2Xiv9r4zHe8_lBSx6i1

I found this link trying to locate information on tatsoi.  Based on the information at the link, including updates, my Windsor broad beans will need protection if temperatures might reach lower than 25 F (-4 C), confirming what Andy said.

Good morning everyone,  the broad beans are looking awfully leggy,  I hope they will thicken up!
I've covered them with a plastic sheet in case the heavy rain forecast overnight batters them down.  This morning I've punctured the pools of rainwater accumulated on top of the plastic sheet.

Cheers,  Tony. :)
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Looked at my Windsor broad beans today, some seem to have what look like flower buds forming (seems too early), or maybe they are just new leafy sprouts?  We'll wait and see.

Well...I've just had a shufti at the broad beans when I flung back the plastic side of the temporary greenhouse andI must say they are akll looking a little DROOPY!

I've flung back the side facing the sun hoping to cheer them up.  The intercropped garlic must be reveling in the chill.
But let's hope.

Cheers,  Tony.

Confirmed that I'm seeing buds on 80 percent or more of the plants, 49 days after the chitted seeds went in the ground.  Maybe broad beans to go with the black-eyed peas and collards for new years day?

I hope they recover Tony.  Or at least, that you are able to get a second sowing in when the weather warms a bit.

Mine will suffer a trial next week, when the forecast low will be -10 C, high will be at freezing.  I will have them fully tented at least, I'll see if I can fend off the worst damage.

The forecast low Friday night keeps getting colder, now -12 C predicted here in beautiful subtropical Georgia.  I'll try adding a top layer of old comforters, see if that helps, but other than that, they will either make it, or won't.

It appears the cold killed everything.  Possibly one plant might survive, but it also looks damaged.

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

It's hard to generalise SP. I lost autumn showings 3 years running. I find cold winds are more of an issue than temperature but our site is exposed.

That's the problem on the Fylde coast, the wind  :mad: Mine will go in Mid Jan and I only grow the Sutton so they don't get hit as bad with the wind and can take some cold temps.
