Garlic will produce seed if a flowering stalk is allowed to develop. You can plant them, but it will probably take a few years before they produce cloves of any size. I'd rather plant full-sized cloves and be able to harvest good-sized bulbs the next summer. Garlic seed is difficult to find but you might try Cyberseeds, PO Box 171102, San Antonio, TX 78217-1102.
