If I buy some small shrubs in pots now, can I overwinter in the shed?

I'm near Vancouver. We are redoing a large flowerbed next spring, and I see the greenhouse down the road has all perennials and shrubs 50% off. If I buy a few now, can I just put the pots in the unheated garden shed over winter? Would I water them? Or should they go in the insulated garage (still not heated, but connected to the house at least)?

Thanks. I think I'm just gonna skip it. Sounds like too much work. :eek:;

We don't have a basement (just a crawlspace already full of stuff), so it would have to be the garage and there's just not room in there. We already have to overwinter 3 fairly tall trees we have in containers. Plus who knows if they would survive and still look good in 4-5 months. Oh well, just thought I could save a few bucks. :rolleyes:
