ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

More cold weather is on the way, and plant experts with ABC Plant Nursery on Ledo Road have some tips to help keep your plants alive. 

With temperatures expected to drop below freezing again this week, experts say its important to make sure you cover you plants.

You can use a tarp or blanket. Also, experts say if you have plants that suffered damage from last weeks freeze, don't throw them away.

He says you can trim them down and let them grow again in the spring.

"You may have a few plants that get burned, like this palm behind me," said owner Greg Daniel. "And the foliage can get burned behind it, and come spring trim all that brown and it will come out new, fertilize it good with a good nursery fertilizer."

Daniel says you don't have to cover your plants during a light freeze, unless you have tender vegetation.
