Farmers aren't the only ones trying to protect their planted treasures, if you've done any planting lately listen up!

Some of your freshly planted flowers, and vegetable plants could be at risk.

At Onslow Nursery in Jacksonville they say simply cover all your annuals, azaleas, and some types of rose bushes.

Joann Brinson says covering plants with a sheet works the best

Brinson says fruit trees and shrubs, and pansies shouldn't be damaged in Tuesday night's cold snap, but as a precaution you can cover them as well.
