How best to use Elephant Garlic bulbils.

I have just dug up my elephant garlic. It has tiny bulbils around the bottom. Do I plant them straight back into the soil, or preserve them over winter until next spring?

Garlic prefer a winter planting. As long as it is not hot in your area, then you will be fine to plant at just about any time, but they prefer a cool planting in fall.
