Chives don’t like to buried too deep, so make sure they’re only just covered when planting and ensure they’ve got enough water! These chives can take up to 2 weeks to germinate so be patient! They can be grown for years however; the plants may begin flowering in the second year.
Harvesting; these can be eaten from any age, however, if you let the plant mature before picking them, you’ll be able to harvest more for longer! Frequent harvesting encourages plant growth - so once your plant has grown to a reasonable size you can enjoy generous harvests while also helping your plant!
Add chives as a garnish to any savoury dish or cook them up in a stir fry for a milder garlic flavour!
