Killing Frost

One night ago we had out first frost of the Fall. I think it just hit 32 degrees at dawn. My dahlia blooms were damaged but the main plant stalks and leaves survived just fine. But last night, one night later, we had a much harder frost. Today all of the dahlia plants are dead, except for their most center stalks and the buried tubers below. Also, all of my annuals that I grew from seed were killed too. The growing season is officially over!
