Need a garlic expert
I've been growing hardneck (seed) garlic for 40+ years - the type that forms a garlic bulb underground and a cluster of bulblets/seeds at the top of its main stalk. This year I had a garlic plant come up off to the side of my regular patch which I figured was just from a stray seed. As the season progressed, it developed quite a tall (4 ft+) main stalk, then bloomed rather than the usual seed "pod". The bloom was about 4 inches in diameter and light pink. After plant matured, I collected the bloom which had developed small black seeds like onions, and a very nice white garlic bulb from underground. Then I noticed attached to the roots of the bulb with three small bulbs, like small flat garlic cloves, each on an individual root. Can someone tell me what I have here?
