May frost

I laughed at the brother last year when he warned me to watch out for the May Frost! I was sure he was winding up the newbie. I'm not laughing now. Tried covering the earlies with fleece but still got discoloured blackened leaves. Big Jim advised me to get the fleece up off the spuds and suggested hooped willow wands as a support - lots growing along the hedge. Strange year so far. What are the odds on a June Frost?
