Hi there, and many thanks for offering this service. We have an Orange, Grapefruit, Meyer Lemon and a Key Lime tree that have been residents at our house for quite a few years. We were able to get the Lemon and Lime in the garage to protect them, but the orange and grapefruit were in the ground in the back yard. The orange and grapefruit have lost all their leaves, and we are concerned that they are completely dead. They were wrapped, but when temps are below 10 degrees for hours and below freezing for days, is there any possible chance that we will be able to save them? Our little orange tree blessed us with 79 juicy oranges last season. We surely don't want to loose them!
We also had a 15 year old rosemary bush that had never frozen before - and this time it is completely black. Is there any chance it will live? We have a little organic garden, and were able to save our onions, but the beet greens all died down to the ground even though they were covered in straw and then row covers (but we are pickling the actual beats as I am writing this - they are small, but we know they will be tasty!!)
