    I'd go with the garage, as there is likely more air circulation and if you can get them at a window, they will respond to the increase in photoperiod when the solstice turns things the other way.

    I agree with Jim--garages are typically better because of better air circulation among other things. I use a refrigerator because that's my only choice.

    I use the garage for my plants.
    If you keep the plants on the dry side you do not need to worry about fungicide.

    Generally, they prefer getting lower temps ALONG with reduced photoperiod. Have they been in front of a window for the past few months? If so, they've already experienced a gradual decline in daylength and it should be ok to put them in the garage.

    Yes, it's ok just as long as they're in a deep dormancy. Only then will they not require so much light. I place my plants outside where they'd usually go dormant, but right now we've been getting pretty warm temperatures during the day and cool-ish temperatures during the night. They should be going into dormancy pretty soon though.
