Is it possible to grow globe artichokes in the Baltimore area? I'm worried that the winter freeze will kill the plants and wondering if they can be over-wintered with cloches.

Baltimore County Maryland

You can grow artichokes in our area and it is possible to overwinter them. However, the last cold winter that we had may be a gamble. Cut it back and protect by covering with a bushel basket or straw.
