I harvested it from my grandfather's garden and wish to continue its lineage. It is of the variety of smaller-with-purple-tints garlic, cloves about the size of a golf ball.
I know my best bet is planting single cloves but I would like to maximize my potential harvest. Do the top of the plants, the seeds that look a bit like popping corn, grow when planted? If so, what is the best way to plant them?
