what does not (won't) grow in the south
This post is for FUTURE reference. I live in northern MI now, but I'd like to at some point garden in the south. Zones I'm thinking of would be 7,8, or 9; states would be Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, or Georgia.
This is probably going to seem like a very odd topic to post, but I'm wondering what can't be grown in the south; or will struggle/die if you plant it there.
I'm guessing stuff that requires overwintering. The stuff that comes to mind is....
*Artichokes (globe variety)
*Parsnips (this is kind of iffy; I know it would be able to be grown in the south; however the flavor would be inferior wouldn't it? parsnips require hard frost to develop good and sweet flavor)
*Asparagus (not sure on this one, that is don't know if it can be grown in south or not; does it require an overwintering period to mature? I'm not sure)
