Yeah just make sure they are covered with some dirt over the winter and they will sprout in the spring. Once they get a few years of growth under their belt it can be hard to get them to go away! They are pretty tenacious.

Cut'm then cover them with manure and a mulch, like straw or something, and don't worry about them until spring.
