Growing Organic Chives Culinary Herb Seeds:

Organic chives are renowned for their tenacious growth and low-maintenance nature. These herb seeds thrive in various conditions and require little attention once established. While they are drought-tolerant, keeping them adequately watered ensures the best flavor.

How to Grow Organic Chives Culinary Herb from Seed:

Organic chives seeds are cool-season crops that can be sown directly or started indoors in early spring or early fall. For an early start, begin sowing 6-8 weeks before transplanting. Plant 2-3 seeds 0.25″ deep per cell or 2-4 inches apart in fertile, organic, and well-drained soil, whether in full sun or partial shade. Chives seeds typically germinate within 7-21 days, after which you can thin to 1 plant per pot or 4-6 inches apart in the garden as true leaves establish.

Organic Culinary Chives Seeds in the Herb Garden:

Organic chives are not only easy to grow but also a charming addition to your garden. They mature at 16 inches tall and are crowned with dozens of purple allium-like blooms. During late spring, once they’ve reached a length of 6 inches, your Organic Chive Herbs will emit a mild spice and produce light-fuchsia colored flowers, imparting a subtle onion flavor. These cool-season chives are ready for harvest before the edible flowers begin to bow over as warmer temperatures set in.

Harvesting Organic Chives Culinary Herb:

When harvesting your chive herb shoots, refrain from trimming all the way to the base until the end of the season. Snip off bunches of chives about a third of the way up the shoot, avoiding harvesting more than 80% of the plant at once. Fresh chive shoots can be stored for several days on your countertop by standing them in a glass partially filled with water.
