Both garlic and asparagus beans can tolerate cool weather, but not freezing weather. Wait until a week before your average last frost date and set them outdoors. Move them gradually outside or the temperature difference will harm them. Start by setting them outside in the shade during the day and taking them back in at night. Do this for a few days, leaving them out for longer and longer periods of time until they remain outside all day and all night. Then move them into more and more sunshine until they are spending all day in the sun. At that time you can plant them in the ground. Good luck with your plants!
