"We squeaked by on Monday night, but we may not be as lucky this go around," 9NEWS Garden Expert Rob Proctor said. "That is why it is so important to either cover up those plants with a blanket or simply bring them inside."
Proctor's garden remains a kaleidoscope of color this fall because he follows a strict method when it comes to protecting his plants from frost.
"I bring my pumpkins inside because they will become mush after a freeze," Proctor said. "But I leave the hearty plants outside. My pansies make it through the winter. My kale can last until December, and my bulb plants can be chopped down after a freeze and then stored in my basement through the winter."
