I planted this, but an animal dug up the area. A week later, I put in transplants. I will keep this in case the seedlings do emerge.

tommyryan's Chives Care Instructions

Try for a seed spacing of at approx. 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) and sow at a depth of around 0.51 inches (1.3 cm) if planning to sow direct.

Chives is known for growing to a height of approximately 45.0 cm (1.46 feet) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in partial sun light: plant in a location that enjoys full sun.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (7b) is within the ideal range for Chives. The recommended range is between Zone 3 and 9.

Chives tends to grow best in a soil ph of between 5.2 and 8.3 meaning it does best in acidic to alkaline soil.
