Garage for frost protection?

NoRoom2GrowApril 14, 2012

Transplants are selling fast around here and I wanted to buy some veggie varieties before they sell out.

Would it be ok to buy transplants / seedlings, plant them into my containers, let them stay outside durring the day until late afternoon to early evening (6PM max) and move them into a garage? I would put a space heater in there on colder nights.

Yes, that would work fine. At this point in the season, your primary concern is frost. If it's an attached garage, I don't think ambient temps will be an issue.
