Hi Lukas,

I live in France, near Strasbourg, and we had the same problem last week, during the night from Sunday to Monday. It started freezing Sunday evening and Monday morning the temperatures had fallen down to -6°C. Some of my Cypripediums had shoots from 10 to 15 cm and I’ve protect them with a frost protective cloth. Despite this precaution some plants have received frost damage. After a week all the plants are looking ok. In the worst case, some flower buds are dead, that’s all.

Frost protective cloth is a very good frost protection, have a look at Werner Frosch’s Website:
