Even though fall has just started, winter is right around the corner.
Frost can be very damaging to your plants if the proper steps are not taken. Experts recommend that if you want to save your plants from becoming frosted over, then you should take steps to bring them in doors.
Potted plants, hanging plants, and even the ones you have in the ground can be saved. With potted or hanging basket plants, bringing them indoors is your best option.

"Some of your herb plants, bring them inside and put them in a sunny window or even a sunroom, but make sure it stays above fourty degrees," Wise said.
Once your plant Is inside, as long as the temperature outside is above 40 degrees, you can put them back on display.
