I try to plant mine at half-term in late October.
Eat the ones that didn't divide, the best ones to plant are the biggest cloves from the outside of the bulb, but make sure they are single cloves and not double ones inside the same skin.
To be honest, although they are an expense, I am going to buy garlic for planting again this year because I have had an absolutely wonderful crop. Ditto shallots.
