Quick Facts

    • Hardy perennial.
    • Evergreen in most climates, but can die back in harsh Winters.
    • Flat leaves.
    • Mild garlic/onion flavour.
    • White flowers June to August.
    • Likes a sunny position but will tolerate shade.
    • Likes rich, moist but well-drained soil. Will tolerate poorer soils.
    • Remove flowers for the best flavour, but flowers can be used in salads.
    • Split/divide every 3 -4 years in Spring.
    • Can be grown indoors or out.
    • Usually, reaching 30 – 60 cm tall.
    • Always leave 5 cm for best re-growth.
    • Chives are considered a cool-season crop, which means that they grow best in the spring and fall. The harsher temperatures of summer usually cause them to go dormant until cool weather arrives again.
    • For a head start in colder regions, start chive seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last spring frost. Transplants need good growth before being set in the garden.
    • Outdoors, sow seeds as soon as the soil is workable in the spring. Note that they can take a few weeks to germinate, so don’t panic! For the best germination and growth, the temperature of the soil should be between 15º and 21ºC.
    • Plant transplants outdoors once the threat of frost has passed.
    • Chives grow best in full sun, though they will tolerate light shade.
    • Soil needs to be moist, fertile, rich, and well-draining. Before planting, incorporate 10-15 cm of well-composted organic matter. Work compost into the soil to a depth of 15-20 cm
    • Sow seeds about 5 cm apart and no more than 6mm deep. Cover with a thin layer of soil.
    • Once seedlings emerge, thin so that plants are spaced between 10-15 inches apart in all directions.
