Can you grow garlic in Missouri?

jwk1(zone 4a)February 16, 2009

We are thinking of relocating to south central Missouri. I live in upstate NY now. Is there enough of a winter to grow the hard neck varieties I grow here in the north? Thanks for any info from garlic growers (I hope there are garlic growers) in Missouri!

Looks like most of Missouri is in zone 5 with the southern portion in zone 6. I don't see any problems growing there. Maybe you can corner the market in that state.

OK, what zone can you NOT grow hardneck? How warm does the winter have to get before it just doesn't work? How long does garlic need to be dormant from cold? These are things I don't know.

After much reading on this I have concluded zone 8 is getting iffy.
