Those little bulbils can be used for propagation, but it takes two
years to get a full bulb. Re-plant them and the first year you'll get
the equivalent of one large clove. The next year that "clove" will
become a full bulb. Traditionally, Elephant garlic is propagated only
from the biggest cloves from the biggest bulbs. Elephant Garlic (by
that name) was found on a farm here in Oregon and given it's name by N.
P. Nichols, who started Nichols Garden Nursery. I've got a story
about it I'll send offlist if you want it.

I am asking here, because I cannot find information elsewhere.
I just harvested my elephant garlic yesterday. Each bulb had a tiny
'cloves' at many of the roots. They were separate from the main bulb
and very small.
Can I use these to propagate more elephant garlic, or are they best used
Thanks for any information, this is my third year growing this garlic
and the first time I had noticed this phenomenon.
