Garden Chives (Allium Schoenoprasum Middleman) 150 seeds (#1731)

Most know only know chives as a chopped herb sprinkled on salads or added to cream cheese for mild onion flavor and green color, but chives are much more than that.
This lovely bulbous perennial is fast growing variety with very high yields. Suitable for forcing in winter. Produces a bottle brush of fine, cylindrical foliage in spring and becomes topped with beautiful lavender-pink, sometimes white, clover-like flowerheads in late spring or early summer. It is a far-flung and diverse onion that’s native across much of the northern hemisphere, so it has been historically used and enjoyed by many cultures worldwide. Adds flavour to curd cheese and egg dishes, salads, sauces and tomato dishes.
Vidorous plants from the garden can be transplanted into pots on warm window-sill.
Chives die back to the ground each fall but return in spring as soon as temperatures begin to warm. This is when their fine, upright, oniony blades are at their most tender and mild. By late spring they put forth upright flower scapes that become topped with puffball blooms that are also edible and look beautiful on salads. Bees pollinate them and heads of black, angular seeds follow. It is wise to cut the heads back after bloom to encourage a second flush of foliar growth.
