green garlic versus garlic chives

I've been reading a lot about green garlic lately, the nascent bulbs pulled up before they get much bigger than a thumb. I love the idea of it, but I also hate to waste what will become whole heads of garlic, and I can't quite make myself yank one out to try it. I did pick up some garlic chives from the nursery the other day, and I"m wondering, how are those different? Will the chive plants become bulbs, and are they basically the same as the big garlic in my garden? Or were those planted from seeds, and how does this make them different? (The garlic in my yard, of course, was planted as a bulb).
