Cover with burlap. Burlap can be reused year after year

Trees are very difficult to protect but can usually withstand the frost better than smaller plants - especially plants in containers. I usually have a lot of older bed sheets (usually from yard sales or thrift stores) and a container of clothes pins. Most of the time I can cover my container plants and medium size plants with these and they are easy to put on and take off.

I have found that if I put emphasis on the bottom area My plants may have damage but usually survive. It is always best to water the plants before a forecasted frost/freeze.
Here are a couple of sites that have some good suggestions:

You can use upside down plastic pots on the smaller flowers and plants, old bed linens on the bigger plants. These types of protection need to come off in the morning, though. Your plants need to breathe.
