Description

Heirloom Herb. Chives grows as tufts of grassy, tubular leaves shaped much like miniature onion leaves. Use the delicate mild onion flavoured leaves in salads, soups, stews, omelettes and dips. Plants grow in clusters to 15 cm (6″) high and produce pretty, edible, purple ball-shaped flowers about 2.5 cm (1″) in diameter. Often gardeners find chives spreading throughout the garden easily on their own. Despite this, chives can be a fussy germinator with the seed sometimes taking much longer to emerge than expected. While it often spreads from established plants by self-seeding, it is not considered invasive. Perennial hardy to Zone 3.

How to Grow

840 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid to late May or in August through September. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep and 2.5 cm (1″) apart then thin to 10 cm (4″) apart in the garden. Note that germination normally occurs within 14 days of sowing, however seed can sometimes take much longer to sprout, so be patient.
