if you don't mind risking loosing a few, you can pot them up in big pots or move them to another part of the garden. Lift the roots with a big clump of earth, replant at the same depth and water well for a few days until you are sure that they have settled
should add that they will continue to grow until the frost cuts them down. If you cut off the seedheads and feed and water well you might get a second lot of flowers
