Relocate Annuals

I live in zone 3 and can I move some of my annual plants in my flowerbed now in the fall?I was just given a cone flower plant, is it safe to plant it outdoors now? Thank You for any information you could give me.

Well coneflower is a perennial plant that can be put outdoors in your garden. If you truly have a coneflower, it should come back next year. Annuals will die in your garden with the first frost. You can take cuttings of geraniums, begonias, and impatiens and grow them in a sunny windowsill through the winter if you like.
