Cynthia reported losses of potted specimens during a three-day hard 
freeze. I don't grow the same kinds of plants as she does (many 
subtropical), but I was able to protect similarly marginal potted 
bulbous plants during the same sort of cold snaps by setting the pots on 
the pavement of my covered patio and wrapping them in sheets of 
microfoam (a frost blanket available from nursery supply outlets). The 
mover's quilts sold at hardware stores also work well, though they are 
heavier and can flatten plants in growth.
