Garlic from bulbils

Last year I decided to try growing garlic from the bulbils that had formed on the top of one of my garlic plants. I harvested them and rather than plant them in the main part of the garden and forget where they were I put them in pots.

Two of the pots were quite large but the third was a shallow seed pan; I had so many of the bulbils I just grabbed the nearest pot for the last batch. I did not expect many of them to grow. To be totally honest I did not expect any of them to grow.

They have all grown! So I am going to have to see if I can transplant the ones from the seed pan to somewhere more appropriate. Or just eat them. I shall be more positive with any bulbils that I harvest this year!
