Hi H4ppy
If you keep the little bulbettes, dry and re plant them you'll end up with the one clove garlic bulbs.
The same as you can buy in Lidl (in a basket).

Further on, if you re plant those, you'll end up with your original large Elephant Garlic again.


I'm a huge fan of the one clove garlic and garlic greens in curries.

cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Cheers Chewy, so in 2 years the little bulbettes will be big heads of garlic. SWEET. Do you grow any?

Hi H4ppy
Yes, I'm saying you have already done the cycle and your at the beginning again.

I grow mainly flowers now, but used to grow Veg and Garlic etc… at my other house.

A few friends have allotments with great sheds and plenty of time and experience.
Quite a lot of old experts, to be found in sheds. ;D ;D

Also my Bangladeshi friends wives, grow all sorts of weird and wonderful veg, with what seems
no trouble at all.

The older the Granny, the better the harvest and curry. ;)

You tie three in a bundle and enter them for the Lord Raglan onion competition.  If you are as lucky as the gentleman who did that today, you will not only win the booby prize (for a mis-identified species) but will also have the satisfaction of seeing your prize-winning garlic auctioned for GBP 35-00 in aid of the Dandelion Time charity.
