During late spring or once they’ve grown 6” long, your chive herbs will give off a mild spice and produce light-fuschia colored flowers that also provide a slight onion flavor.

Allium schoenoprasum. Chives are native to regions in Asia and Europe. This Chive cultivar is common in the U.S. and is a different type than its relative Chinese Chive variety, which is also called “Garlic Chive.” Among the many vitamins chives provide, they also contain choline—a calming nutrient that helps with sleep. As one of the prolific “fines herbes” of cooking, chives are easy to grow from seed during the cool season, but also do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.trueleafmarket.com\/pages\/the-herb-growing-guide-from-true-leaf-market\" target=\"_blank\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDownload Free Herb Growing Guide PDF\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eSelect a Different Use for This Seed:\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cdiv class=\"profile-links\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"\/products\/chives-microgreens-seeds?variant=46587738120\"\u003e \u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2016\/2681\/files\/tlm-microgreens.png?4946520050077590398\"\u003e\u003cu\u003eMicrogreen\u003c\/u\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c!--split--\u003e\n\u003ch2\u003eChives Herb Garden Seeds\u003c\/h2\u003e \n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Latin Name:\u003c\/strong\u003e Allium schoenoprasum\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Herb Days to Maturity:\u003c\/strong\u003e 90+ Perennial\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Hardiness Zones:\u003c\/strong\u003e 3-11\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Seed Planting Depth:\u003c\/strong\u003e 1\/4”\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Seed Plant Spacing:\u003c\/strong\u003e 6-12”\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Growth Habit:\u003c\/strong\u003e Upright\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eSoil Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Rich, moist and well-drained\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eTemp Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Cool to warm\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eLight Preference:\u003c\/strong\u003e Full sun to partial shade\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Pests\/diseases:\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChives Herb Color:\u003c\/strong\u003e Green grass-like shoots, light-fuschia flowers\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cstrong\u003eChivesHerb\/seed Flavor:\u003c\/strong\u003e Mild onion, spice, verdant, fresh\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eChives Herb Growing Habits\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNon-GMO (Allium schoenoprasum) Chive plants grow as upright hardy perennial herbs which thrive during the cooler seasons of spring or fall.
