frosted jade plant

The only thing you can do is cut it back to a section that is still reasonably vertical, put it in a light position in a warm room and hope. Since the plant is not frost hardy, your chances of it recovering are not very good, I'm afraid.

What's the weather like in your area?

Absolutely throwing it down here most of the day, so the frost and ice is gone, if nothing else.

Bad luck, Zoomer - have a hot toddy, it might help.

Down to under -4 here at the moment, but supposed to warm up tomorrow.

You can wash greenfly off with mildly soapy water, but they will come back - they are a major pest in greenhouses in winter, as there are few predators.

They vary according to the cold, artjak - the colder it is, the deeper they go. Also, they can and do fly, so even if you change the soil they will still fly in.

When they become active - I've seen them as early as March.

Frosty, clear and bright here today, with the promise of more frost overnight.

The bulbs shouldn't be affected - the beetles overwinter in soil.

Re-plant your bulbs as quickly as you possibly can - unlike, say, daffodils they will be damaged if they dry out at all.
