Annuals can’t survive in cold temperatures, and I think it is worth trying to save some indoors until next year. I did a walk-though my garden and decided to do an experiment to preserve some for next spring. I proceeded to cut some of the annuals that I still have left in the garden, brought them indoors, remove all the lower leaves, place them in water and put them in a sunny window. Almost within a week, I started to see some roots developing. Needless to say, I was happy. If I can maintain these plants alive until spring, then I can put them in good soil and plant them outdoors when the temperature is safe to put annuals in the ground. That will save me some money as well.
Therefore, if you still have some annuals hanging out there, go to your garden, cut some and put them in water until next spring. Make sure you change the water as needed, so the plants don’t rot.
