Usually it's the top leaves that are nipped by frost and not the whole plant. I think they will recover. Don't prune off the damaged plant parts just yet. Wait until you see new growth and then pinch off the dead leaves. Good luck with your plants. Oh - if frost threatens again, cover over your plants with an old sheet or blanket to keep them frost free. Best wishes with your garden!
