Teaser: Mild onion flavour.
Description:

Heirloom Herb

The entire plant is edible but preference is for the young, long, dark green onion shaped leaves with their mild onion flavour. The delicate leaves are used in salads, soups, stews, omelettes and dips. The stunning purple-blue flowers are used in salads and as colourful garnishes. Chives are a good choice for pollinator gardens as the flowers attract bees with their large supply of pollen. Plants grow in clusters to 25 cm (10") high. Perennial hardy to Zone 3.

How To Grow 840 seed/gram Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May to June, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Chives can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor chives are short lived. Outdoors, Chives are low maintenance plants - all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for taste and smell. Chive are grown for their leaves. Harvest continually to stimulate growth.
