Garlic Chives have a mild garlic flavour. The white flowers are flat and the leaves are solid and grow to about 30cm (12″). The seed is black, faceted and pear shaped and contains a peppery taste.
Sow seeds 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in small pots of compost , lightly covering the seed with a sprinkling of compost. Water well and place at a temperature of 15-20°C. Alternatively sow outdoors March-May where they are to crop, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, directly into finely-prepared soil.
Thin plants to 9 inches apart, keep soil moist- especially in dry spells. Divide and replant every four years.
Full sun is needed with well-drained soil.
