In the frosting process water vapor or water in the gas, form becomes solid. Frost is forming when an outside surface cools than the dew point. The dew point is the coolest point of the air and the water vapor in the atmosphere converts into liquid. Then this liquid freeze and it is cold enough that small pieces of ice or snow/frost form. This ice is set in the form of ice crystals. Frost is a natural occurrence and it is beyond our control. Watering the plants after frost is the most important thing in winter gardening. You should do it with carefully and can use some basic gardening tools to remove frost in your garden.

Therefore, when you are watering the plant, it will cause to melt the frost on the plant and help to recover.
After frost, you may check the soil around the plant if the soil is dried out or if the water in the soil is frozen, it cannot give enough water to the plant that it needs.

And also remember to do not prune the injured plants. Pruning stimulates plant growth, which means that your plant will start new growth in the pruned area.
