Garlic chives are also known as Chinese chives have attractive narrow, flat gray-green grass leaves to 12 inches long when allowed root space to fully mature. Its white blossoms appear in great profusion in summer and are good cut-flowers for fresh or dried arrangements.
Both leaves and flowers have a pronounced garlic flavor, although milder than bulbs, that adds zest to salads, stir-fries, rice, and noodles. Perennial. Leaves freeze well. Can be grown all year round potted on a windowsill.
You can sow chives seeds thinly outdoors in spring where you want them to grow. Prepare the soil well with added compost or other soil improver and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Thin out the young plants to 23-30cm (9-12in) apart when large enough to handle.
Seeds can also be sown indoors from March to June in pots or cell or plug trays filled with seed sowing compost at a temperature of 18-21C (65-70F). Lightly cover the seed with more compost and keep moist. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5-10cm (3-4in) pots in bunches of 4-6 seedlings per pot. Grow on the seedlings in cooler conditions of around 10C (50F) and plant outside when the last frosts are over, after hardening off – gradually acclimatizing them to outdoor conditions – for 10-14 days.
Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.
If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.
For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
