I have transplanted twice into larger pots. They are thriving but still small about 4-5 inches high. I intend to sell these plants next year. My question is: Should I store these plants over the winter in my garage or in my basement. My basement stays about 50 degrees in the winter while the garage can get to near zero. And, should I water plants during cold months?I live in Buffalo, NY.

I would recommend storing them in the basement, and would also recommend a horticultural light to sustain them. A good t5 fixture will be sufficient.
