What to do…

Hopefully someone here has an answer for this question/situation, so here goes:
My SO and I are in the market for our first jointly owned home(renting from his parents at present). There is a possibility that escrow will go thru in January and we'll be moving in the middle of winter(yes I know, UGH!) Over the past 2 years I have put several different perennials in the landscape(daylilies, irises, hostas, leopard lilies), which I really do not want to leave behind in the move. My options are:
1. Dig up the ones I want to take and "re-plant" in the containers I bought them in, and then after the first hard frost move them into the semi-heated garage(35-45 f.) until we move.
Or:
2. Leave them all in the ground and hope that the house doesnt sell until after I have had a chance to transplant them in the spring.
Oh yeah by the way, we're in US zone 5,Columbus, Ohio
Thank you in advance for any suggestions! :-)
