Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - With the threat of frost in the air, many of us will likely be covering up plants tonight.

Gardening experts say plastic or bed sheets work the best to keep in the heat around plants. But if you do use plastic or linen, make sure it is not too heavy so the plants don't get damaged.

Todd Weinmann, NDSU-Cass County Extension: “Place it over your entire plant without leaving any little air tunnels or openings. If you leave openings, the cold air can get in there and it's just not going to be as effective.”

Watering your plants tonight will also help to keep them from freezing.
