As the cold weather begins to set in across the U.S., gardeners and other plant enthusiasts may be looking for a way to protect their hard work from unexpected frosts.

According to West Virginia's WBOY, there are several strategies one can employ to protect plants. Employees of Blatt's Greenhouse in Lavalette, West Virginia, told the news source reports different flowers require different levels of care to survive plummeting temperatures.

Though plastic is typically used to cover plants on cold nights, large sheets or cloth may be a better option, as these will not burn the plants when the sun comes out. You will likely be able to find the necessary materials at your local greenhouse for a low price.

The news source also reminds those with a green thumb to be sure to give their plants protection in the morning, as the bright sun can cause damage after a particularly chilly evening.

Finally, the best action one can take when protecting flowers from the cold is to bring them inside. In fact, fresh flowers in the home may be beneficial for one's mood, according to a study conducted at Rutgers University.
