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!

So far, so good I planted them 6 days ago, they did not sprout yet, but I know eventually they will. How do I know that? For the past 3 days, I have noticed a very strong onion smell in my garden area, I put my nose in the square with these seeds, I can confirm it comes from here. So yeah definitely a 5 out of 5 product, but something you may want to know before you grow them.
Worked great with potato spuds
Was really surprised at how long these grew. They were at least a foot long
Grows really well, easy to do, tastes amazing! Everything I was expecting and more
I planted about 30 seeds within the space of a thumb print, they worked really well and supported each other throughout their growth
