    Not that bad considering. Try and keep it next to the house wall. Some leaves will die and drop off , but as it gets warmer, start increasing water and use a citrus feed. New shoots will soon get moving.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    It might just be sulking, you are very brave to keep it outside, mind I dont know where you live,  Last months Gardeners World, Monty says to give them a good soaking once a month, rain water, as Phillipa says too early to feed it, The Citrus Centre Pulborough sell a feed you can use all year save getting a separate winter and summer one.

    MrsGlaze, you did the right thing by keeping it close to the house wall and putting fleece over it during the cold snap. The leaves that droop may recover or they may drop, but that is fine, it happens. I would advise against watering anything. Obviously collect rain water for later but whilst the weather is still so cold, just hold back on the watering.

    Lots of people leave them in the cool conservatory or greenhouse, so if you have the space, then do that.

    Could you bring it inside for a while?
