Cool season perennial. Chives are super easy to grow, require little maintenance, and come back year after year. Edible flowers make a tasty chive vinegar, look and taste great in salads, and dry well for arrangements; foliage adds a subtle onion flavor to many dishes. A good container variety — grow indoors in the winter, in a warm, sunny location. 50+ Organic seeds.

~ germination ~

Days to emerge: 10-15 days. Chives grow well in a variety of soil types, though they prefer rich, well drained soil and full sun or partial shade. The seed can be started indoors about 4 weeks before the last spring frost; provide bottom heat, consistent moisture, and darkness for fastest germination. The seeds should sprout within 2-3 weeks; they can be transplanted 6-8" apart as soon as they grow big enough to handle safely, and there is no chance of frost. To direct sow, plant the seeds after the last frost of spring 1/4" deep in rows 18" apart, thinning to 6-8" apart as soon as the seedlings appear. Chives also grow well as a container plant. For companion planting benefits, plant chives with carrots; this improves the carrots' flavor and production.

~ planting ~

When to sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost or as soon as soil can be worked, or as late as 2 months before first fall frost. When to start inside: 6 weeks before average last frost.

~ harvesting ~

FOLIAGE: Cut outer spears of chives when at least 6" long, and cut back to 2" above ground level. Once or twice a season, shear plants to 2" above ground. This will keep new, tender foliage available. FLOWERS: Harvest for dried flowers & consumption when in full bloom.

~ additional instructions ~
- all seeds are heirloom, open-pollinated, organic & non-gmo (unless noted otherwise).
- detailed instructions are included with every seed package.
- inquire for discounts available on bulk quantities.
