Care Instructions

Look to ensure a distance 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) between seeds when sowing - cover at a depth of at least 0.51 inches (1.3 cm) deep if you are going to sow this directly in the garden.

Chives can grow to a height of approximately 1.46 feet (that's 45.0 cm in metric) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in partial sun light: Chives enjoys a full sun position, so make adjustments where necessary.

Remember to water moderately.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8a) is within the ideal range for Chives. The recommended range is between Zone 3 and 9.

Ensure your soil has a ph of between 5.2 and 8.3 as Chives is a acidic to alkaline soil loving plant.

More information about Chives is available in the Folia gardener's wiki. All Chives Care Instructions have been kindly provided by our members.
