Frost Bitten Hass :( starts with ...
Recently bought a Hass tree, planted it with plastic surround. Didn't help tree ended up with frost damage. Re-planted in pot on our enclosed deck. Leaves are dead, rootstock appears to have new shoots but the Hass graft is black and slightly soft. Is there any chance of survival???

Do you know how low it got using a Max-Min Thermometer? Avos can handle light frost but not weeks of it?
Unless you can create a micro climate that wont get much below 3 to 5c `ish and wind and sun protection for first few years - also raise it minimum 300mm X 1.8m dia - your success will be limited. I wouldnt plant in ground till soil was 15c at least - also try a Bacon as Hass need more warmth - cheers

You have lost that tree - sorry to say. It will be a weak and sickly thing for awhile now. It's your choice to keep trying with it or not tho.
You must put a frost cover over them when they are that small.
