Planting & Care
Planting: Plant Outdoors
In the cool weather of early spring, sow clusters of 7 - 10 seeds about 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-like leaves that mature into mounds.
Start Early Indoors
In early spring, sow 7 - 10 seeds in individual containers of 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 clusters of seedlings when 2 - 3" tall after gradually acclimating plants to outdoor conditions.
Growing: Chives bear lilac-pink clover-like flowers in late spring and summer. After bloom finishes, cut entire plant back to 2" to encourage regrowth of tender new leaves. Given plenty of moisture and a location out of fierce sun, chives are hardy, self-sufficient plants.
“It was wonderful to find seeds for California native plants! It will help my front yard look much better since the lawn died due to the drought.”
- Carol from California
