Garlic chives have a mild garlic flavor with hints of onion. The flat leaves are bright green with white flowers. They are easy to grow from seed during the cool season and do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs. Garlic chive herbs are a popular garnish in Asian and French cuisine and can make a great aromatic ornamental herb in your garden!

Chive seeds can be planted outdoors.

Sow seeds after the last frost date.

Plant 6 seeds 1/4" deep and 6" apart. Harvest chives when 8-10" tall by cutting off the leaves at the base. Water and trim often to delay blooming.  Seeds should come up in 7-14 days.  

Plant in a sunny location with well-draining soil. Water seeds frequently and keep them moist until they germinate. 

Each packet contains 200 Chive Garlic seeds. Allium cepa. Annual/Perennial. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. Harvest in 60 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 15' row.

In the winter, the leaves and stalks will die back completely to the ground, like all herbaceous perennials. The roots or rhizomes in the ground will remain dormant, and send up new sprouts in spring.

Garlic chives, also known as Chinese chives, are a clump-forming perennial herb/vegetable. While regular chives are thin, tubular, and have a strong onion flavor, garlic chive leaves are flat and wide, with a distinctly garlicky flavor.

Features.

The chive leaves, stems, and flowers are all edible. Flowering stems with a tight, unopened flower bud at the top, are a seasonal specialty. They have a firmer, crisper texture than the leaves, making them ideal for stir-frying.

Garlic Chives are easy to grow from seed during the cool season and do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs. Garlic chive herbs are a popular garnish in Asian and French cuisine and can make a great aromatic ornamental herb in your garden!

Benefits.

In the late summer and early fall, the plant flowers, attracting bees and other pollinators. The flowers are actually quite beautiful, which is why this plant is sometimes grown as an ornamental.


More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting beets can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.
