One may also ask, how do I get my annuals back? To overwinter your annuals indoors, dig up the entire plant before your first fall frost. Cut the plants back by about a third and plant them in pots with fresh organic potting soil. Another way to overwinter annuals is to take cuttings from your existing plants.
Also asked, can you leave roots in the ground?
yes you should leave all annual roots in the soil, will they all be decomposed by next year, no. corn will not and neither will some others, but they still will be adding humus to the soil. No you don't have to dig them out to plant, just push the new seeds in between the old roots.
What do you do with impatiens at the end of the season?
Cut off all foliage at the end of the fall season. Cutting the plants back allows them to survive cooler weather in USDA zones 8 through 10 and prepare for reemergence the following spring. You can cut impatiens back to within three inches of the plant's base as fall turns to winter.
