Chives are a hardy perennial that will form heavy clusters of 6-12 inch tall clumps. They are cut and come again, and the lavender flowers are beautiful. The delicate onion flavor is great once they are established, and they will last many years. Perennial in zones 3+. They are good for pot culture, and the finely chopped tops can be used as for many culinary purposes. The flowers have a stronger flavor and should be gathered just as they open to extend blooming. 300mg ~ 300 seeds.

Plant seeds directly into the garden around average last frost date. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 60-65°F. Or, start seed indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Transplant to the garden around average last frost date in the spring. The flowers should be gathered just after they open to prolong blooming. Plants can be divided once they are established, around 3-4 years.
