Planting & Care
Garlic chives grow as a very tough perennial, so it is quite easy to find a spot in your garden where they will thrive. They however do particularly well in areas of full sun. Can be divided from existing clumps readily – you should aim to divide in spring or autumn.

Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Dry to medium
Temprature: 4 - 5°c
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer
- Harvest by cutting them with kitchen scissors or shears just below the surface of the soil – don’t cut midway through the chive.
- This is due to the fact that most of the flavour is in the base, and it also encourages more growth of the plant outwards (cutting at a midway point will kill the rest of the chive remaining).
Herb gardens, vegetable gardens, cottage gardens or naturalized areas. Attractive flowers have good ornamental value and are pleasant additions to rock gardens or border fronts, however flowers must be deadheaded before setting seed or seedlings will sprout up throughout the garden.
- It is used internally to treat urinary incontinence, kidney and bladder weaknesses etc.
- The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
No serious pest or disease problems. Can become a weed.
