Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
Everyone loves chives, and having some in the garden makes all kinds of special dishes a snap. Forget the dried ones in the supermarket...your own fresh ones will have great, strong taste! And remember, they're great for decorating all kinds of soups, salads, and other dishes.

When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location (will tolerate filtered shade) and sow seed as soon as ground can be worked. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food and organic matter. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Feed every 2 months. Divide clumps every 2-3 years.
Harvesting: When mature can be clipped with scissors almost continuously. Can be frozen.

very pretty flower


from los angeles

Comments about American Meadows Common Chives Seeds:

pretty foliage and flower. planted 3 roots this spring, all of them came out and produced flower, though not much. weather in southern california maybe too hot and dry for it. soil condition maybe another reason, may need acidic fertilizer to produce more flower. it withered slowly after flowering, hopefully it will come back next season.

      Tried these seeds twice, indoor first, then outdoor when temps got warmer. Nothing ever sprouted. Will try again next year!
