my german hard neck whatever variety it is that i got from a customer of mine when i was downstate produces some large bulbils, some that are marble sized, others that are
pea sized. the larger bulbils will divide into a small bulb the following year. when i replanted cloves from the small bulbs, i usually got full sized bulbs the following year.
some of the smaller bulbils that got left in the ground due to me missing them for some reason produce an undivided round. they in turn have become rather large bulbs the following year. either way i win. i have had tiny bulbils survive the winter outside fairly well. i grew music up to bulb size from small bulbils. it took three years. i did the same with homestead garlic bulbils from sandhill preservation. not something i would recommend for the impatient gardner, but i liked doing it.

don't abort. we'll adopt.
