Backyard Farming: Growing Garlic book by Kim Pezza, has an advice of cutting off the scape and keeping it in a vase of water, while removing the bulbils and letting the flowers to grow. This way it can be kept away from too hot sun, which may cause the flowers to wither too early.

I could try this with some of my hardnecks, but I am not sure, if I have patience to grow garlic from true seeds. I am now trying with some bulbils, which I got from a garlic aficionado, who has collected couple of hundreds different garlic varieties.
