I have two jasmine plants that I am growing in containers and need to know what to do during freezing temperatures. Should I bring them inside, or cover them?

Jasmine is hardy outdoors in your gardening region, but because they're in containers, the roots might freeze. You can protect your plants by either burying the pots in the ground or placing the pots in larger pots and filling the space between the two pots with styrofoam or other insulating material. Good luck with your landscape!
