As temperatures begin to cool down in the Tri-State, different plants start to require some special care.

If you're invested in plant work and agriculture you'll want to know the tips to help prepare and care for your plants throughout the winter season.

"This cold weather will kill them," said Jesse Meyer, the assistant manager at Colonial Classics Landscaping & Nursery. "you want to make sure you do proper care for them. That way each year they can continue to grow and continue to bloom throughout the years."

While it is Fall, now is the time to be proactive. The first step is to bring your house plants inside because they won't be able to survive the freezing temperatures.

"As for your perennials and your trees and shrubs, this is just mother nature taking its course and they won't do anything but help them go into its dormant period," said Meyer.

As far as the plants in your garden you don't have to cover them now that it's later in the season. Meyer said it will actually cause more harm than good.

One last thing Meyer said to keep in mind, water your plants daily.

The passage of an overnight cold front will bring another shot of unseasonal cool air. Northwest winds will give way to raw conditions with windchills holding in the 30s through most of the day. Expect highs to top in the upper-40s under clear skies.
