When did you plant and what did you use to plant....cloves or seed?

i planted last autumn and used the cloves.
i was wondering whether the little pips or bulbs are worth planting?
or will they take 2 seasons to produce?

Yeah, I've heard they will produce garlic, but it will take longer. Like you said, maybe two years.

too long for me then!
the cloves are in for long enough, i should have enough for next season now.
i started with only 5 cloves, maybe 15 this time
