    Just leave it alone a bit of frost damage on the leaf is fine, It will throw up bigger leaves in the coming months, had mine for over 15 years and this time of the year is a bugger as the temp warms up they spring into life and obviously any frost nights the leafs get toasted.

    Before the beast from the East yeah it would have leaves almost 5ft across, still waiting for it to get back to that size.
    Just remember you can never give it enough water and a regular feed and you can’t go wrong

    cheers harry, i have mine half in half out of a wildlife pond its not fully seated in water more where the plants have reclaimed the pond so its not actually sat in water and i do water it quite a lot in summer especially the leaves, what kind of feed would you recommend bearing in mind its connected to a wildlife pond thats teaming with things ? cheers mark. got any pics ?

    If it’s in a wildlife pond I would imagine it will get plenty of nutrients so no need to worry on that aspect.
