Q.Garlic seeding

Zone central texas | Timine added on May 11, 2012 | Answered

I planted garlic for the first time. The garlic plants are looking great, but all have seeds on one of the stack. Is this normal? Should I remove the seeds or just let it on until I harvest the garlic?

Thanks in advance, Emile Landry

Those are bulbils and they can be planted just like the cloves and bulblets to grow new garlic but it will take 2 years before they will form a full head of garlic. You can simply leave them be or remove them. Either one will not hurt the plant.
