Be sure to use cloth and not plastic to cover the plants during the frosty nights. Remove during the day. Plastic will not allow the moisture that collects under the plastic to evaporate and will cause the plant to freeze to the plant. Cloth allows for evaporation through the material. If you have a lot of pots you could consider buying a smudge pot to keep the air walmer around the plants.
