There i was today looking at seeds and bulbs outside a local supermarket when i saw some "plantable garlic bulbs". You get two for £1. Hold on i thought. I've had garlic bulbs at home that've been left too long and they've started to grow shoots.(that is actually the correct word and not CC's censored word used to describe a number 2 ). You can buy something like 6 bulbs of garlic for eating for about £1. So what's the difference,if there is one between plantable garlic and edible garlic? Could i just plant the garlic you buy for eating and would they grow decent garlic?
