Garlic Chives Organic
Allium tuberosum. Garlic Chives add a beautiful mild garlic flavour to your salads or stir-fries. Also a great addition to flavour your vinegar or oils. Profuse white blossoms will appear in the summer and both flowers and leaves are edible. Easy to grow and full of vitamins. Approx. 100 seeds/pkg.
Start indoors 6 weeks before last frost date. Sow seed 1⁄2 inch deep in pots or flats of soil mix. Germination is very slow (7-14 days). Constant moisture, darkness and warm temperatures are required. When seedlings are 4 weeks old, transplant in the garden in full sun.
Chives should be divided every 3 years. Leaves can be snipped when plants are 6 inches tall. You should not cut closer than 2 inches from the ground, since the plants need some leaves to keep growing.
