I bought a bulb of organic garlic to try and grow.
While separating the cloves, a couple of them broke off that woody root 'plate'.
Will they still grow?
No, they will not. The plate is the only point on a garlic clove where the roots can emerge. Don't plant them, as they may host pests/diseases while decomposing that may affect the other good cloves and spoil the crop.
