Details

The entire plant is edible but preference is for the young, long, dark green onion shaped leaves with their mild onion flavour. The delicate leaves are used in salads, soups, stews, omelettes and dips. The stunning purple-blue flowers are used in salads and as colourful garnishes. Chives are a good choice for pollinator gardens as the flowers attract bees with their large supply of pollen.

Now you can enjoy even more home-grown goodness from Botanus. We’re thrilled to offer a select line of top quality, certified organic vegetable seeds. Aimer’s Organic Seeds is one of Canada’s most respected seed suppliers. Their mission is to provide only the best seeds available from certified organic producers whose quality meet the Canada No.1 standards.

840 seed/gram. Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May to June, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Chives can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor chives are short lived. Outdoors, Chives are low maintenance plants – all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for taste and smell. Chives are grown for their leaves. Harvest continually to stimulate growth.
