Organic Culinary Chives Seeds in the Herb Garden
Often grown for the home and kitchen alongside other bright aromatic favorites, Organic chives are one of the easiest and most reliable herbs both in and out of the garden. Despite being an internationally favored herb and spice, Organic chives seeds grow just as outstanding of an ornamental in the garden, maturing at 16" tall topped with dozens of purple allium-like blooms.
During late spring or once they"ve grown 6" long, your Organic Chive Herbs will give off a mild spice and produce light-fuschia colored flowers that also provide a slight onion flavor. Cool season Organic chives will be ready for harvest before the edible flowers begin to bow over as the warmer temperatures set in, before going to seed.
Harvesting Organic Chives Culinary Herb
When harvesting your chive herb shoots, don't trim all the way to the base until the end of the season. Snip off bunches of chives just about a third of the way up the shoot. Don't harvest more than 80% of the plant at once. Fresh chives shoots can be stored for several days on your counter-top by standing them in a glass and filling part-way with water.
