Knoxville (WVLT) - Late Thursday afternoon, employees at Mayo Garden Center started taking in potted plants, so they don't freeze over night. They suggest you start doing the same by dusk to keep your plants healthy over the next few days.
If you have planted anything in the last two or three weeks things like tomato plants, geraniums or impatiens you need to cover those up or bring them inside.
