Laetitia, you don't say what State you are in!  Zone 5 can be fairly cold!  I 
contacted a friend who had kept potted irises over a winter in zone6//7 and 
one year it was very cold and she lost 90% -- another year it was fairly warm 
for winter and everything was fine.  BUT remember that most garages are 
usually dark, and you would need some lights for the irises, also water 
occasionally -- a cold frame would be better, and the idea of "planting" the 
pots in the ground is a good one, and then mulch around the pots --not he 
irises.  Good luck!  Rosalie nr Baltimore zone 7 with rain, the remnants of
