The slender, onion-flavored, green foliage of chives can be eaten fresh or cooked, and can even be frozen for use later. The cheery, lavender-pink flowers of this perennial herb are also edible and make this species a welcome addition to ornamental borders. Plants will self-sow. Perennial in zones 3-9.

Growing Instructions: 

Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep 4-6 weeks before last frost. Germination in 7-14 days. Transplant outdoors 4-8" apart as soon as soil can be worked in spring. Chives are also easy to direct seed. Established plants can easily be divided in both spring and fall. Remove spent blossoms regularly to prolong blooming.
