Plant Information

"Garlic Chives" have more a taste of garlic than of chives, and they are wonderful in cooking. Both the starry white flowers and the leaves are often boiled into soups and they are a major ingredient in dumplings in the east. Of course, they add spark to any salad, too.

Everyone loves chives, and having some in the garden makes all kinds of special dishes a snap. Forget the dried ones in the supermarket...you own fresh ones will have great, strong taste!

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.

        Germinated well

        By 

        from Atlanta, GA

        Comments about American Meadows Garlic Chives Seeds:

        These germinated and grew well, but did not have a garlic or chive taste - the taste was there, but not strong at all.

        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).
