Description

Garlic chives, also called Chinese chives, have slim flat grass-like leaves that taste like a perfect combination of sweet garlic and chives. Just snip them over salads, fresh vegetables, or any savory dish to add a subtle and delicious garlic accent without any of the fuss. The green strappy leaves form neat mounding plants with pretty white edible blossoms. This permanent perennial herb is a joy to have ready at hand - a gardening cook's secret!

Planting & Care

Planting:
Plant Outdoors
In the cool weather of early spring, sow clusters of 7 - 10 seeds 8 - 10" apart in well-worked, fertile soil in sun or part shade. Cover 1/4" deep and press soil firmly over seeds. Keep evenly moist as seeds germinate slowly over several weeks. Emerging seedlings have very slender grass-live leaves that mature into mounds.

Start Early Indoors
In early spring, sow seed thinly in a container of seed starting mix and cover 1/4" deep. Keep evenly moist as seedlings slowly emerge and provide a good light source until ready to plant outdoors. Transplant when seedlings are about 2 - 3" tall after gradually acclimating plants to outdoor conditions.

Growing: Garlic chives grow slowly at first, but soon mature into sturdy bright green mounds crowned with pretty white edible blossoms in late spring and summer. After bloom finishes, shear entire plant back to 4" to encourage regrowth of tender new leaves. These hardy, self-sufficient plants are attractive additions to the flower or herb garden.
