Karla do you have a sprinkler system you could set on a timer? I think if you do that, set it to come on at a certain time, right before the frost hits, it will protect them.

Fuzzy there is a method the growers use to "ice" strawberries and citrus but they stay up to monitor
I Have in the past when there has been a frost used the hose to rinse off the frost before it could cause damage

I have an idea of using flexible pipe and fabric to sew a kind of tent I can just pop over the plants that way it will trap the heat as it is released during the night

You need to find out how the orange growers do it!
