Heirloom Herb. Garlic Chive seeds are easy to grow! Leaves, stalks and immature flower buds are used in salads, as a garnish, or as flavouring in stir-fry dishes. The taste is a succulent combination of the soft chive leaf and mild garlic flavour. Grows to 20 cm (8″) high with thinly strap-like leaves and white, open, ball-like flower clusters. Also known as Chinese Chives, Ku Chai.
Garlic chives are a perennial hardy to Zone 4 and can become adventive in mild climates (Zones 7 & 8).
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.
