Growing garlic in a container

Growing garlic in a container

I want to grow garlic this year, but will probably have to grow it in a container or not at all. Can you successfully grow garlic in a container, if it's big enough? I'm concerned that it won't be cold enough in the container (our winters are mild, I live in NC, USA) for the cloves to do what they need to do. Any tips from anyone that's ever grown garlic, in containers or not? Everything is most appreicated. TIA!
