After frost kills the sweet peas, cut everything down to soil level. They'll sprout again in the spring. Knock Out Roses are winter hardy. You can prune them back by one third when they go dormant after a hard frost and then you can pile shredded leaves over the bases of the plants. Best wishes with your new plants!
