Top setting garlic bulbs
A friend and I both planted the same variety of hard necked garlic (organic from the Farmer's market but not sure what kind). Mine acted as garlic should. I had only a few scapes which I cut off and the garlic did quite well for our summer without summer in my area.
HIS ended up with clusters of top setting bulbs with flowers coming on top of (out of?) the tiny bulbs. He used tomato fertilizer and I used a more balanced all veggie one.
So his question is -- are these minibulbs viable? Can he plant them and expect to get something?
