Warm to temperate seasons are ideal to maintain growth. If you want to plant chives earlier and live in a cold region, start inside 6 to 8 weeks before your average last frost date. Once the seedlings appear, thin the chives to 6 to 8 inches apart. Select a sunny location (partial shade is fine) and sow seeds as soon as the soil can be worked. Cover and firm with soil. When harvesting, clip with scissors. Contains Calcium, Iron, Vitamins A, B1, B2, Niacin.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eHarvesting\u003cbr\u003eBe sure to trim back the flowers as they will readily reseed and can become a nuisance. Expect flowering to occur in late spring. The flower buds are edible too and can be used in salads or as a garnish. Cut shoots down as needed to the base, a couple of inches from the ground. Harvest 3 to 4 times the first year, then cut back once a month the following years. You can store chives by freezing them in a container. Dried chives lose their flavor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSeeds Per Package:\u003c\/strong\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e2 g - Approximately 500 Seeds\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e1 oz -
