Bulbils can be an inexpensive way to build up your garlic supply.

If left to flower, a garlic’s scape will produce these “false” seeds. Not technically a seed because they are genetic clones of the parent plant, bulbils can be thought of as tiny garlic cloves.

Scape flower filled with bulbils

Bulbils will grow into a larger single bulb the first year. Plant a second year and they will grow into a small garlic head with multiple cloves. After 4 or 5 years of replanting they will become normal sized garlic.

Patience is rewarded.

100 bulbils cost about the same as 5 heads of garlic. 5 heads of garlic replanted every year will yield about 600 heads after five years. 100 bulbils replanted every year will yield about 2400 heads after five years.
