Description

This easy to grow, perennial herb is indispensable in the kitchen garden. With a few clumps of chives just outside the back door or growing in a pot on the patio, you'll enjoy chives' mild onion flavor in salads, sandwiches and soups.

Plant seeds in well-drained soil in early spring. (Seeds may be started indoors 8 to 10 weeks earlier. Before transplanting harden off seedlings by putting them outside during the day for a week.) Before planting, enrich the soil with vegetable food or compost. Sow seeds, firm soil gently over the row and keep moist.

Water regularly. Chives go dormant in winter and begin to grow again in spring. If winters are severe, mulch clumps to prevent freezing. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years. To harvest, snip off leaves 1/2-inch above the ground. Shearing the entire clump weakens it.
