I'm interested in visiting a Frost Landmark in September as part of a road trip to Northern New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts in September.
But there are so many to choose from! And my traveling companion probably won't put up with visiting ALL of them. So help me pick, particularly if you have experience with visiting one or some or all of them. [more inside]

Dumb gardener filter: What can I do to help protect my big hibiscus plant from the frost tonight? This is the first frost all winter. I've been told to just throw a twin sized bed sheet over the whole plant. Is it that simple? [more inside]
How do countries with long, cold winters deal with frost-heave in their roads? Is there a kind of frost-resistant road? Is it much more expensive?
Springfield Lemon Tree
Filter: I have a Meyer lemon tree
which was subjected to very cold temperatures last month. I was able to get it inside, but it spent almost a week outside, with temperatures in the low twenties (F). All of the leaves have dried up, and most have now fallen off. No new leaves have grown. I've had this tree for about six years, and it was a few years old when I purchased it. I'd very much like to save it.
It is in an extremely oversized pot, which I thought would help shield it from the cold, but apparently it wasn't enough. At the very least, I'd like to be able to save the roots, even if I have to graft another tree to the trunk. Any ideas?
