Mulching PlantsMulch helps to trap the moisture around the plant, as well as protecting against cold weather. Some prefer mulching over cover their plants, and both are fine. Popular mulching materials are straw, pine needles, bark and loosely piled leaves.
Watering PlantsAnother way to protect your plants from the colder weather is by watering them a day or two before the frost is expected. Wet soils holds more heat than dry soil. Be sure not not saturate the plants while the temps are too low, it will result in frost heave, and can injure the plants.
Obviously as winter is looming in the distance, you can't protect your plants forever, but you can help extend their life by protecting them on the especially cold nights. Remember that potted plants should be brought inside when the weather starts to get cold.
