Botanical Name: Allium schoenoprasum
This useful and decorative perennial herb will grow with little trouble in any garden or in a window-box or pot. The attractive pink flowers and rush like leaves make it an ideal edging plant.
We hope you enjoy these chive seeds, just another great example of herb seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
How To Grow
Sow from Spring to Autumn, 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 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.
