Two row of rounds were planted in October 2017. They are now mature and produced about four cloves per round. These cloves will now be planted in October 2018 and will produce normal sized garlic bulbs in July of 2019. Sequence is plant bulbils (seeds), Rounds, Small bulbs, Then normal sized garlic. Bulbils>Rounds>Bulbs>Normal sized Garlic.
The small bulbs were pulled and place in a warm spot in the shade in the greenhouse to dry for planting in October 2018. This sequence means the full garlic crop is used, not necessary to save some for planting , also the new garlic is disease free.

I planted my best six cloves, from my best six bulbs, last week in September last year, and our (relatively) cold winter helped me take a beautiful crop of garlic in the third week of June this year, many the size of the palm of your hand.
Yet your light and climate makes some things much easier.
Shows what difference climate makes, eh?
