I wouldn't. The roots need to be able to grow beyond the confines of the small, plastic containers they are purchased in. If you want to overwinter them, transfer them to a larger pot with good potting soil before sinking them into the ground for summer. Impatiens will do well in a proper sized container on the patio or planted in the ground without a container.
