Elephant Garlic offsets

Have just harvested some EG and wondered whether the little bulbils attached to the base , some twenty from five bulbs , are worth growing on.

If anyone has tried this I would love their comments as to whether it was worth it and how they did it. month planted, depth , distance etc please.

    Hi you plant garlic in September to get a better harvest just put a lot of compost in you can get fertilizer for garlic but I don't use any, you can plant offsets but won't be as bigimage
  • Thanks Logan in your experience how big is big with ref to the parent, half or a quarter perhaps.

    As EG  is big anyway clove wise,and my crop are huge in size this year( even for EG) with some massive then smaller ones could be ok.

    Spacing could be closer perhaps saving space ?
