Q.Overwintering perennials

I have divided several hostas and rose of sharon into garden pots. Where is the best spot to store them over the winter. I am hoping to move soon and want to take some of them with me.
Thanks for your help. Love your website – it is so helpful!

Hostas in pots will do well outside in a protected area as long as they are mulched well. If you want to be doubly safe, you can winter them in a garage or basement near a window and water sparingly over the winter. Rose of Sharon will need to be stored in a cool location as well, such as a garage or basement.
