Chives      

Tastes like mild, sweet onions. Great in salads or herbal vinegars. Height 6-10". Treated seed. Approximately 1290 seeds/package. Zone 3.

Perennial – Zones 3-9.
Sow seed ½" deep in pots or flats of soil mix. Germination is very slow. Constant moisture, darkness and warm temperatures are required. When seedling are 4 weeks old, transplant in the garden. Chives should be divided every 3 years. Leaves can be snipped when plants are 6" tall. You should not cut closer than 2" from the ground, since the plants need some leaves to keep growing.
