Heirloom Herb Chives 

Garlic chives, also called Chinese chives, have slim flat grass-like leaves that taste like a perfect combination of sweet garlic and chives. Just snip them over salads, fresh vegetables, or any savory dish to add a subtle and delicious garlic accent without any of the fuss. The green strappy leaves form neat mounding plants with pretty white edible blossoms. This permanent perennial herb is a joy to have ready at hand a gardening cook’s secret!

How to Grow

2800 seed/gram. Sow Thyme seeds directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid-to-late May or again in mid-August through to mid-September. In spring, the seed can also be started indoors on the surface of a soil-less mix 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. Keep the temperature at 21°C (70°F) for the 10-20 day germination period, then grow on under drier conditions at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Sow seed no more than 3 mm (1/8″) deep and 2.5 cm (1″) apart then thin the sprouts to 20 cm (8″) apart in the garden.
