How to Grow Garlic Chives

Garlic chives are a close relative of ordinary chives where the normal mild onion flavour is replaced by a pleasantly sweet garlic flavour. Garlic chives are best harvested regularly and enjoyed when the leaves are young, sweet and flavoursome. They are especially useful when garlic bulbs are out of season or unavailable, and may be kept going in pots over winter indoors to prolong supplies.

Garlic chives are delicious in salads, spreads, dressings and used as a garnish.

To start chives from seed, sow in pots or directly in the garden in mid- to late spring. Choose a sunny spot with rich, well-drained soil, and sow seeds in clusters 1 to 1-1/2 feet apart. Keep soil evenly moist until seedlings are up and growing vigorously.
