No bookmaster.  weather is warming now.  

Espaliers and cordons have extra wall protection....reflected heat from the wall....so yours will be fine.  If yours are anything like mine we are in for a bumper crop 

fleece flapping around, should wind occur, will damage blossom anyway 

SNOOKER!!!!!!

The "cold spell" is unlikely to affecf your nematodes Patricia.  The important thing with nematodes is to water them well in after application to wash them into the soil.  Then to keep ground moist for a few days.

vine weevils seem partial to photinias Patricia....I would be tempted to apply either provado or nematodes...not both 

photinias are fickle and seem to suffer an awful lot from leaf problems and die back.  

Try a gentle prune back to buds if you can, a balanced fertiliser like fish blood and bone (I think bonemeal is over rated and useless as a top dressing) a good watering and then a thick mulch.

We can grow some tender stuff here GD and despite ever decreasing space my demand for more and more plants is increasing.
