Chives, Organic (Common)
Botanical Interest Brand
Perennial Full Sun to Shade
Chives are easy to grow, require little maintenance, tolerate drought, and come back year after year. Edible flowers are loved by bees, make a tasty chive vinegar (recipe inside packet), look and taste great in salads, and dry well for arrangements; foliage and/or flowers add subtle onion flavor to many dishes. Great for containers; grow indoors for year-round harvest. Perennial in USDA zones 4-8. Deer resistant. This packet sows up to 19 ft.
