Actinidia damage

On inspecting the walled garden today in prep of fleecing tender plants before tonight's frosts I was upset to see my adored Actinidia kolomikta has been frosted

never happened before and been in 8 years, what should I do?

there are a few shoots unharmed but I fear it may be too late for new?

    Well it's hardy down to about minus 10 and lower so I wouldn't worry too much. It will recover.

    More damage is done by minus 1 degree in late April than by minus 10 in January. But generally it's only superficial and the plant is fine.

    Thank you both, I will just keep my fingers crossed.
