Planting Advice

Sow from Spring to Autumn, 15mm deep in groups of 3-4 seeds. Remove the weaker seedlings to leave one plant per position. Allow 15cm between the plants and keep watered during the growing season. Chives will grow in any good garden soil in sun or partial shade. You can also sow indoors all year round, 3-4 seeds per pot and grow on the kitchen windowsill. Use good quality potting mix.
