These tasty, easy to grow garlic chives are a mouth-watering additition to any dish. Rather different from onion chives in both flavour and appearance, this flat leaf variety blooms in the summer months with pretty white star shaped flowers.
The flowers can serve a dual purpose, in flower arranging or in culinary work as an ingredient in salads, soups, cooked meats, butters or stir fries. Great for cut and come again gardening, these chives will benefit from a regular snip, although do leave a few flowers for the bees.

These seeds are ideally sown in March through to May. Place them thinly in small pots or into plugs and cover with a thin layer of soil and water in a propagator, situated in a sunny spot. Keep them well watered, especially during dry spells.
Your chives should be ready for harvesting during the summer months and into September. They will die back in Autumn, but by maintaining a tidy bed for them, they will come back year after year.
