Chives - Common

    Allium schaenoprasum
belongs to the onion plant family and is originally from Central Asia and known in China for at least 4000 years. There it is called "˜the Gem of vegetables"™. It is perennial. Sow it directly in tufts or rows in nutrient-rich, weed-free soil! It should be renewed by dividing up the plants or re-sowing after 3-4 years. Harvest sparingly the first year! The whole plant should be cut down now and then to prevent its growing too coarse. Chives can be dried or frozen without parboiling but do loose some taste in the process. Chives are beautiful potted herbs. The light-violet flower balls can be dried as everlasting flowers or mixed in salads.  They are quite tasty.


SOWING: Sow in groups or in a row in well-nourished soil without weeds. Divide or sow again after 3-4 years.

SEEDS: 1 g contains about 800 seeds.
