It may be because you are growing garlic varieties that do not produce any/many flowers eg turbans, rocamboles or softnecks?

If you go to Joseph's true garlic seed page, he has compiled a list of links to the most important blogs, forums and research papers with information on growing true seed and has summarised his own efforts in producing true seed
