I treat the first year bulbils exactly like normal cloves planted. Simply keep the new rounds produced in a dry place and plant in the Fall. There is no way they can be left in the ground, since they are crowded and certainly have to be removed and made tidy. I have removed the new rounds yesterday and am drying them for the 2017/2018 planting.

Last year rounds are still in the ground and will be allowed to fully mature until about the end of August, then pulled and dried for the planting in October as cloves for the main 2017/2018 crop.
