society garlic

I saw a programme recently that talked about digging up and dividing 'society garlic'.  Never heard of it before!  Any help anyone?  Many thanks

    I think this could be Tulbaghia violacea

    Mistakenly sometimes called 'Pink Agapanthus' (stick to latin names)!! ; Tulbaghias are much more tender than the common grown garlic-bulb , and best overwintered under glass , kept on the dry side .

    I have mine in the garden.

    The frost (when we get it) cuts down the foliage and pervades the garden with a strong smell of garlic!!

    Comes back every year though.
