Digging up the Elephant garlic, I found several that had these little bulbs growing from their roots. I had to do a little research, and found out they are called corms. I read that you can plant them and they will grow, but that it could take years for them to become full size garlic. I may try a few for fun...but I'd hate to give up garden space for a multi-year experiment.
See the little nodules growing from some of the roots? Those are corms.
