gone to seed

Some of the garlic that I had put on the drying rack, 'solent wight' has gone to seed.

The seed heads are so beautiful that they warrant a little bit of photographic attention. I think the fact that they have gone to seed means that the garlic will be inedible. Reading around it is not recommended to plant these seeds, just to grow garlic from cloves. I am tempted to experiment. Any thoughts?

I have read just from cloves not sure why though. You could try saving your best bulbs and using cloves from them to plant later in the year.
