HOW TO GROW GARLIC CHIVES

Stratify for six weeks, then start with bottom heat indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost, plant out after frost. Direct seed when soil temps are above 68˚F. Remove flower stems to increase leaf production. Keep well watered through the season. Divide clumps after 3 years or about 12” across. The rather small bulbs are about 10mm in diameter and are produced in clusters on a short rhizome. Grows in slowly expanding perennial clumps.
