Garlic is forming a flower...what do I do?

15 years ago

My elephant garlic is forming it's scape. From what I have read this will be it's flower. The store-bought garlic was planted last fall. I've tried to do some research on what to do with the scape, but I found conflicting info.

Should I leave the flower alone or should I remove it? Since the garlic is only one year old, will I get any cloves? If I don't get any cloves should I replant the round?

Any info would be helpful...Thanks.

PS: I have already posted this in the Allium forum and I didn't get any responses, so please don't tell me to go there ;)
