Thought best i start its own thread as maybe growing these bulbils that roughly once every ten years show up in some friends garlic crop, i'm sure it's a sliverskin soft neck and not a Artichoke as there's no purple colours showing up in it. As ive already pointed in another thread her and hubie are 'off griders' so water is not as so freely applied like it is my garden, i couldnt see that this line will ever produce a scape here, so i plan to drop some off soon and they'll try again. Will growing from a second generation have a better chance of producing scapes? Bit of fun to play around with and who knows where this could lead. vgy.me/Mh6HFy.jpgvgy.me/RvRjhz.jpg
