Help me please---my garlic has bulbs on top, and what are scape??

14 years ago


THis is my first year growing garlic. I planted several varieties of both hard and softneck in the Fall. Now there are bulby things at the tops, which I presume will become flowers. When I pulled up a bulb it was definitely not full-size. What do I do? WHen do I harvest them, since they have the bulby things? There is still plenty of green leaves.

Also, I keep reading a lot about scapes, but I can't find a thread that defines what they are!

Thanks in advance for any information you can give me!!
