Plant Information

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!

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
