Yes, you can plant the small

By Almanac Staff

Yes, you can plant the small bulbils that are found inside the flower. Cut off the stalks with the flower heads attached. Tie the stalks together in bunches and hang them upside down in a ventilated area to dry. When dry plant the individual small bulbils in the fall and add mulch if you have severe winters. Next spring dig the small bulbs, dry and replant the tiny cloves in the fall. It takes several years to grow full-size bulbs.
