Budding plants and trees are covered in snow this week and there's another cold night ahead leaving many wondering who this unusual weather is going to affect their plants. 

Pat Sullivan from Sullivan Hardware and Garden has a few tips and tricks on how you can protect your plants, starting with bringing your potted plants inside.
