Protect New Plants From Below Freezing Temps

RobinWittyDesigns added on April 2, 2016 | Answered

I am just starting out with a new garden/farm in WV. I planted small fruit trees (2-4 ft) and some sprouting seed potatoes (3-4" shoots) and some non-sprouting seeds in the nice temperatures. Now we are going to have below freezing overnight and a few nights in the coming week. I don't have official garden freeze material, but do have weed block, hay, old bed sheets and empty plastic bottles from milk, soda, juice. What's a quick, impromptu method of protecting them and do I have to? Thanks.
