A bit of frost should be ok, as long as it doesn't go below -3 I won't be worrying.

Possibly. It's not that heavy to move about yet in the pot but will need an even bigger pot next summer. It will have a limited life if/when it gets planted out though.

You never know, your new garden might be very sheltered when its planted up and create a favourable micro climate.
