Garlic Bulbs

West Midlands, United Kingdom Gb

GoY told me that I should buy garlic bulbs to plant from a farmers market. We have this Massive super market bulb and one of the cloves is already sprouting, i figured that this one would be OK to plant and would grow to be big like the original bulb. Is this correct?



yes it will grow to be the same variety of garlic. It probably wont get as big though. worth a try Spottyelephant

Thanks! I'm going to do it anyway. I don't really want bulbs that big because I won't be able to use them all! The cloves are really round though.
