-0.5c this morning. Only lasted a couple of hours before rising above zero late in the night.

Not enough to catch the susceptibles, basjoo leaves, potted collies and Brugs all placed by walls. The dahlias and a pink china planted in the open got it, however.

Looks nice though.
Got a similar temp myself on sunday.[-0.3 although airport nearby was around -2 ].
Luckily without the hoar frost though for some reason.
The car had dew on it, on 3 sides, but only frost on the rear screen with -0.3.
