I bought my Impatients yesterday to pot. Last night there was an unexpected frost! I still planted them. What can I do to help them survive???
Thanks Kristina

Let's see a picture, please?

You could have helped them before it got cold by throwing a box, or even an old sheet over them. After the fact, it's either they survived or they didn't. If they're still alive and didn't freeze they will rebound. Just water sparingly and do not fertilize until you see new growth well on it's way.
