Chives (Garden Starter Plant)


Allium schoenoprasum

Easy to grow, onion chives pack a lot of flavor for their compact size. The plants form neat grass-like clumps of tubular leaves that contribute an onion flavor to salads, creamy soups, potatoes, egg dishes, and others. A wonderful addition to an herb garden. Great for containers, and also makes a neat border. Enjoy the light purple blooms in the spring–they are edible, too. Frost tolerant.

  • Spacing:  8 to 12 inches
  • Plant size:  1 foot tall
  • Garden use:  Herb garden, flower border, containers
