Garlic Seeds on Top of Plant

Anonymous added on July 1, 2011 | Answered

I planted garlic and now there are seed pods on top of some of the leaves. Do I pull these off? The garlic is not yet ready to dig out of the ground.

You can. 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.
