Scapes are the shoots that will come up in the centre of the plant. The shoots
will curl and have a a flower (seeds) if not broken off after the curl makes
one full turn. They should be broken off for the garlic bulb to properly mature
( something to do with the enzymes).
And there are no dumb questions; just dumb answers -sometimes !!!
Good luck
