Grow your own fresh and fragrant chives at home, and enjoy full flavoured dishes every day. These seeds produce a delicious herb that can be easily grown in pots or as a decoration for garden edges. This plant is easy to grow, and features long, dark, straight leaves with a mild onion flavour that are great in salads and cooked dishes. Plant your seeds in well cultivated soil to benefit from a bountiful garden.
|Flower Colour — Pink|
|Soil Requirements — Well drained soil|
Sow 15mm (1/2in) deep in groups of 3-4 seeds. Remove the weaker seedlings to leave one plant per position. Allow 15cm (6in) between the plants. Chives will grow in 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. Cut the leaves close to the ground as required before the flowers start to form. Alternatively put the clump in a pot and cut down the foliage – fresh shoots will emerge quickly.
