i have new buxus and baby fruit bushes which are still in there original pots but have been outside in the snow and frost will they survive



Unless the compost in the pots got frozen solid for longer than a week or so, they should be fine.

Bamboo, Mike's pots are likely to have been frozen,on and off, since early December - right, Mike? We have many plants and shrubs in a similar situation. They 'should' be OK. If the Buxus still has its leaves then it is OK as should be the fruits.

I guessed they would, bulbaholic, but as long as it wasn't longer than a fortnight each time, they'll probably survive!
