should be able to but if it does absorb moisture it may start to break down over winter.

What's the option - bring it in the house? It might last longer that way but I leave stuff like that in the garage over the winter.

Yes it should be OK.
Be sure to put it in a plastic bag to keep moisture out.
Store mine in the shed and it goes to 40 below.

A plastic bag....sealed tight will keep air out.....which depletes the nitrogen somewhat.
