Save some plants in the winter by bringing them indoors. Try to save plants that are expensive or that are resistant enough to handle the transition. Carefully dig up the plants, using caution not to disturb the roots, then transfer into a pot.

What this does it essentially kill the weeds by damaging their roots. The result is that those weeds are unlikely to regrow.
Be vigilant about keeping moisture off your plants. Many diseases, as well as most parasites, prefer moisture. A common parasite to plants is fungi. Be sure to prevent the growth of fungus with a spray that will inhibit their growth.
