I've been trying to garlic from seed for about 5years now I've listened to all the experts with no suscess
But this year I have about 150 garlic seed growing
But last years garlic came up in clumps because forgot
To pull them  up all of those where softneck but most
Only 3 to 10 flowers per bulb I had no time to pull each
Bubils one at a time  so I man handle each scape
Some flowers fell of other got damaged I caught the bubils in a bucket I grew them like nature would have
And nature would treat the scape very roughly
And this year garlic seed  Finley growing
But my hard neck I grew in rows 6 in spacing and pulled all the bubils one by one took for ever out of 500
Only 5 seeds soft neck 400 seed about 150 to 180 made it

Most of the ele garlic seedling turn in to bulbing leek
Which are very Hardy plants with stock about .5 to1 in thick slight pungh less than Onion they would be good
For rengen farming you can cut the tops off and they will grow back every time and the seeds in there scape will produce more seed or sell the flowers to a florists
The flowers will be white
