Chives - Garlic

Garlic chives,
Allium tuberosum
Approx 450 seeds 

Garlic chives are good-looking and long-living plants that are just plain tasty. With a mild garlic flavour, these are used extensively in Asian cooking, but work really well in just about anything. The dark leaves are a great garnish. And wait until they flower! Striking white balls of florets with a delicate perfume are sensational at the end of summer.

Easy to grow. Direct sow or transplant in clumps. Makes an excellent companion plant in the vege patch or a rather fine addition to your windowsill. Will sit dormant if temperatures get too low (under about 5°) but make a strong comeback in Spring.

Sow period: September-May
Days to germination: 7-14 days 
Days to harvest: Micro 30 days  Mighty 90
