Fargesia Scabrida Bamboo

I am new to this forum and would like some help with how I can overwinter this bamboo. My intention when I bought the bamboo was to transplant them in a planter and have it as a privacy screen. Well that never happened and they are still sitting in the containers I bought them in (1.6) gallon pots. I have six of them. Should I put them in bigger pots and if so how much bigger or should I just leave them as they are until next year? Will they be alright left outside on my deck this winter. I can't put them in the ground because I don't have the space. Will they survive in a garage if the cannot stay outside? Any help or ideals would be appreciated, thanks Ellen

They'll probably be ok in the pots outside as Fargesias are very hardy temperature-wise and you are in Zone 7. If you could put them close together and cover the pots with a mound of compost they should be well-protected. Also, make sure they do not dry out.
