Chive Herb Seeds

[80 days] Perfect as an ornamental or as a culinary herb, no garden is complete without chives. The greens are mildly oniony necessary for many a savory dish and the flowers create a perfect garnish for just about any dish (and are especially tasty in salads!). The plants themselves are perennials and will reward you with years and years of tasty leaves and flowers.

 

Cold hardy, disease resistant, heat tolerant and grow well in containers.

Common Questions

How long do Chive seeds take to germinate? Sow your seeds about 1/2 inch deep into your soil 4 weeks before the last frost of the spring. Your chive seeds will take 14-21 days to germiante before sprouting.

Should I let Chive plants flower? To continue the production of your chives you can cut the flowers once the have finished blooming. Once your chives begin to bloom you will find that your harvests will get smaller. Once flowers have blossomed your plant will start to produce smaller leaves and the flower stalks are inedible.

What is eating my Chive plants? Slugs will be a persistent problem to your chives throughout the growing season. They come out from their hiding spots at night and hide in the soil during the day. You can stop slugs climbing up your pots by placing lures or even a little salt on the slugs. Don't use too much salt as many herbs can be affected by excess salt.
