Before the first frost sets in, take cuttings from annuals like coleus, begonias, fuchsias, and impatients. Remove any buds, then dip the ends in rooting compound, and plant the cuttings in a mixture of vermiculite and peat moss. Once the plants begin to grow, you can plant them in regular potting soil, care for them throughout the winter months as you would normal household plants, and then you'll be able to replant them in your outdoor garden in the spring - it's a great savings!
